"The latest release of the Linux kernel, 2.6.33 is expected to
be out by the beginning of March and among its new features is a
reverse-engineered driver for Nvidia graphics chipsets.
"Jonathan Corbet, Linux kernel contributor, co-founder of
LWN.net and the lead author of Linux Device Drivers, Third Edition,
will give Linux.conf.au attendees a full update on the Linux kernel
at the conference on Wednesday. He told Computerworld version
2.6.33 is "pretty well along in production".
""All the features have been added and we are testing
stablisation now," he said. "One of my favourite things would be a
driver called Nouveau."
