Intel's Poulsbo Driver A Bloody Mess?

What a surprise when they explained that this Poulsbo driver is actually for hardware from ImgTec, aka PowerVR.
strangely - unless i missed it - there is no connection made with this other article:

VMware Acquires Tungsten Graphics

yes, this is what I referred to earlier in this thread (I think, it's been going on a long time).

there has been a build with the IVI drivers, but there was a bug, they fixed the bug, but didn't make a release of the build for people to download. sigh.

--edit--

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardwareSupp...eoCardsPoulsbo

if yr a real sucker for punishment, there's a 131 page forum thread about getting the driver into 10.04 on that page, which takes you here:
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1229345


this is why my U820 which triple-booted ubuntu 10.04, moblin/meego and windows 7 spends most of its life booting windows7 ;-(

That has to be some of the ugliest stuff I've ever read about a driver... wow.

Unfortunately is's about par for the course across most of the industry. Latest incarnation: Qualcomm's snapdragon driver. Nice to see airlied drawing a line though.

And this awful move is interpreted as a proof of "Android's openness" to slashdot users... The N900 already uses a crappy but open kernel driver and closed userspace.

"has EABI version 5, but target" vs "has EABI version 4"

will upgrading the compiler will help to build (dont care about running) EABI binaries ?
