matrox millenium

Post by zak mandaza » Fri Dec 07, 2001 5:48 pm

hello people,
l'm interested in writing an accelerated graphics driver for my matrox card. l'm using qnx 6.1, and l know that matrox is already supported. what l want to do is to write a parallel driver for interest sake.
can some one tell me which examples given in the gddk relate most to the matrox driver (i810, banshee, hq, vesabios etc).
is there any possibility to check the source code for the drivers under qnx 6.10.? any ltips will help

thanks in advance

If you just doing it out if interest, you should find all the examples
interesting ;-)

Have fun!

A good starting point would be one of the accelerated drivers such as
the chips_hiqv or banshee and modifiy the modeswitching and drawing
functions to work on your graphics chip. You will need the register
level documentation from Matrox to do this.

We cannot give out the source code to our Matrox graphics drivers because
we signed an NDA to get the register documentation.
