simpledrm - a kernel fbdev replacement
I am an apprentice at SUSE. My job is to absorb knowledge and perhaps do something useful with it.
No video of the event yet, sorry!
simpledrm is a fbdev replacement implemented in the DRM kernel subsystem. It allows for smoother handover from the early boot phase to when a "real" DRM driver is loaded. In addition it allows for Wayland support on simple display adapters that do not have their own DRM driver. It has already been mainlined for a while but is not in active use by major linux distributions.
In this talk I will briefly introduce you to the project and show you how you can test it on your machines. I have recently learned about this effort and started looking at DRM. This talk is held by a kernel newbie.
