Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 203373
please add cirrus logic graphics driver
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:40 EST
Description of problem:
while real cirrus logic cards are probably hard to find these days, some
emulation/virtualization solutions (xen, qemu) virtualize a cirrus logic
graphics card. providing a driver in fedora would allow the host to behave as
a better guest, by using bitblt operations instead of memory operations which
need to be trapped.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install xorg-x11-drivers
cirrus logic driver not installed
cirrus logic driver installed
I built the driver from source and it works as expected in qemu.
You set the Hardware field to all, which sort of masks the problem. The cirrus
driver is currently only built for x86 (not for any good reason), and the
xorg-x11-drivers package respects the ExclusiveArch: settings for each driver.
So I can only assume you're not using x86...
Cirrus driver unmasked in rawhide to build everywhere, and xorg-x11-drivers
updated to match. Thanks!
I'm on x86_64. Sorry for not being specific and thanks for fixing this so
