Ubuntu 13.04 xenosfb driver request

Post by fentis » Sun May 19, 2013 8:25 pm

Hi,
I've installed ubuntu 13.04 minimal with kernel 3.5.4 compiled from github.
Sadly, the old video drivers (debian squeeze, ubuntu precise ecc) don't work!
So what are the needed source code changes to compile a new working driver for ubuntu 13.04?
xenosfb source: https://github.com/Free60Project/xenosfb.git

Thanks in advance

Ok, what I've done so far

updated latest xenosfb git code to use xf86-video-fbdev-0.4.3 as base
compiled and tested on ubuntu 13.04

ported Bertl's xenon-patchset 0.11.1 to kernel 3.8.8

unity (default ubuntu menu) is not working
maybe due to hardware acceleration that xenosfb doesn't support? idk
audio module is loaded and installed correctly but no sound! idk
also tested lubuntu (lxde), fluxbox, openbox and gnome fallback and it's all ok

Now trying to enable wireless support on kernel and hope to find a working driver
for the slim internal (usb) wifi adapter.

Hope it's all good, I'm not such a good programmer...
