DragonFlyBSD Has Full-Acceleration Now Working For Intel Broadwell Graphics

Filed under
BSD

Francois Tigeot's latest effort on porting the Intel i915 DRM code from the Linux kernel to DragonFlyBSD has paid off in the form of full acceleration for Broadwell "Gen8" HD/Iris Graphics.

Tigeot issued a call for testing a few days back of an update to the i915 DRM code that would position the DragonFlyBSD's code at the stage of the Linux 3.16 kernel. This updated code should fix some issues that previously caused X.Org Server crashes, correct outstanding bugs, improve performance for all GPU generations, and provide much improved support for Broadwell graphics. He noted that the Broadwell GPUs on DragonFlyBSD should now be fully accelerated with this new code.

Using OpenBSD as a FreeBSD Router

  • Using OpenBSD as a FreeBSD Router

    In 2004, whilst at Netsight, I started looking at using OpenBSD for routing. We were using big Cisco 5505 switches with Route Switch Modules in to provide routing. The problem was, they soon became quite slow. They were great if you wanted to do very simple routing, and they could do Layer 3 switching in silicon on the linecards. But as soon as you started to do access lists then they had to route the packets on the main CPU. Not only that, but Cisco’s ACL syntax quickly became very cumbersome as you had no way of doing any kind of macros or variables in the language.
