Hi,

for fulfilling https://features.opensuse.org/307588 it is needed that
openSUSE Kernel gets patched with upstream patch:

commit d5f3c90d4f3ad6b054f9855b7b69137b97bda131
Author: Marcin Ko??cielnicki <koriakin@xxxxxxxx>
Date: Thu Feb 25 00:54:02 2010 +0000
drm/nv50: Implement ctxprog/state generation.
This removes dependence on external firmware for NV50 generation cards.
If the generated ctxprogs don't work for you for some reason, please
report it.

Discussion started ...


This will get pulled in with the next kernel update, so no changes
needed here.

factory will have it soon.


Well that's something we should probably discuss. This was part of
2.6.34-rc1 and the 11.3 release schedule puts RC1 pretty much exactly
where 2.6.34-final should be. If we get a lot of testing in with
2.6.34-rc's then it's doable but tight.

Linux 2.6.33 release: 24 Feb 2010
Development circle: ~90 days
Linux 2.6.34 release: ~25 May 2010

openSUSE 11.3 Milestone 7: 21 May 2010
openSUSE 11.3 RC1: 17 Jun 2010
openSUSE 11.3 Final: 15 Jul 2010

I think we should deliver openSUSE 11.3 with Kernel 2.6.34.

As Jeff said we should also deliver all 2.6.34-rc's for more testing.

Kernel modesetting for AMD/ATI hardware would also be great ...
(# CONFIG_DRM_RADEON_KMS is not set -> CONFIG_DRM_RADEON_KMS=y)
