Re: nvidia reactions to Greg Kroah-Hartman's announcement.
Well, then the thread is useless since it is asking for Nvidia's official response to the kernel team's offer to help with driver development. Nvidia is currently a closed source driver company (and there isn't a shred of evidence that Nivida is considering opening up). Therefore... if this thread isn't about Nvidia coming to the table, then there can be no official response. Just my two cents.
As far as I'm concerned, Nvidia's "official" response is "take a hike!" But I too, would love to see Nvidia take the kernel developers up on their offer. So... how is this NOT part of this thread again??
Or are you suggesting that Nvidia would actually publish enough internals for a clean room implementation? Sorry.. but AFAIK, the hardware internals and the closed source (secret) driver are joined at the hip.
