Hello everyone,

Can we use new kernels with "DRM" instead of "FBDEV" in enigma2? (DRM_FBDEV_EMULATION maybe?)

Regards,
Persian Prince

And what will be better with DRM?


I don’t expect changes. There are only few people with the knowledge how to change that in e2 (if possible and there are no changes needed in the drivers). And I’m not one of them.

Anything that can be mmapped is okay. DRM also supports oldskool fbdev anyway.

And if you have something else, you can always render into a RAM buffer and blit that to the screen. That'd also work for OpenGL. Quite a bit of work in the rendering, with absolutely no visible endresult, unfortunately.
