To make it clear: This whole argument is *ONLY* about the HDMI chip driver, which is the only closed source part in the kernel. This part is *not* a modification of some existing code. You can build the whole image without it (or maybe with a dummy module) from source, and all the video decoding and analog output will still work, but you lose and HDMI/DVI output. Maybe there will be a better solution later, but for the moment that's it. There are enough real challenges in the project than thinking about how that module can be put into user space... -- Georg Acher, [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://www.lrr.in.tum.de/~acher "Oh no, not again !"
