Google open source guru says Android code will be in Linux kernel in time

,----[ Quote ]
| Googleâs Android code will assume its 
| rightful place in the Linux kernel â in 
| good time, the companyâs top open source 
| guru says.
| The Android code was stripped out of the 
| last kernel release, version 2.6.33, after 
| Google reportedly failed to provide 
| necessary changes and subsystem code 
| required by kernel.org. 


The Possibility Of Nouveau 1.0.0?

,----[ Quote ]
| Following the very heated kernel DRM 
| discussion that came about as the result 
| of a major interface break in the Nouveau 
| DRM code, David Airlie has asked on the 
| Nouveau mailing list about potentially 
| releasing Nouveau 1.0.0. Right now the 
| Nouveau interface is at 0.0.16 and is 
| wondering if developers will accept just 
| renaming the current code to version 
| 1.0.0.


An Explosive Battle Over Nouveau Kernel DRM

,----[ Quote ]
| Breaking the Nouveau interface for the 
| kernel DRM is causing the X.Org Server to 
| stop working with this driver and forces 
| the user to upgrade their non-kernel 
| Nouveau drivers. While the Nouveau driver 
| just entered the Linux 2.6.33 kernel 
| unexpectedly at the request of Linus 
| Torvalds himself, he is now outraged over 
| this interface breaking.



Android comes to landline phones

,----[ Quote ]
| At CeBIT this week, Motorola demonstrated an
| Android-based "HS1001" cordless IP phone
| manufactured by Binatone and built around the
| DSP Group's DECT-compatible XpandR chipset.
| Meanwhile, DSP Group showed its own Android-
| based IP phone reference design based on the
| XpandR II chipset.
| For much of the last decade, Linux-based
| landline-based IP phones made regular
| appearances on LinuxDevices, but with the
| rise of mobile phones, such announcements
| have become fewer and farther between. The
| few IP phones we've covered recently are
| typically multimedia tablet/kitchen-computer
| designs, such as the already defunct, Linux-
| based Verizon Hub, built by OpenPeak,
| OpenPeak's Linux-based OpenFrame IP phone, or
| the Android-based Glass reference platform
| from Cloud Telecomputers. Typically, in these
| designs, IP telephony is just one feature
| among many other multimedia and Web browsing
| capabilities.
