NVIDIA Tegra2 overlay available


It’s been a long time since i’ve wrote something. I’ve got a lot of things going at work and its taking all the energy from me. However i still spend time with Gentoo on weekends.

Anyway, some days ago NVIDIA published the updated Linux For Tegra(previously known as L4T) Linux development kit. The main difference with the previous one is that it uses a 2.6.38 kernel from the Chromium OS. Another thing is that the stupid nvrm daemon isn’t needed anymore, it was needed before to get audio and cpufreq functionality, and who knows what else. Also, NVIDIA was kind enough releasing the X.org drivers for the GPU in the tegra SoC. It also released them for different ABIs, which is appreciated.

I’ve done the ebuilds for it(it was really easy) and i’ve pushed them to the overlay: http://git.overlays.gentoo.org/gitweb/?p=proj/tegra.git;a=summary
The overlay should be available on layman too.

The ebuilds provide the libraries+drivers for the X.org driver, nothing else as far as i know…

    Forgive me for asking, but, does it still need binary blobs?
