DRM/KMS, FB and V4L2: How to Select a Graphics and Video API - Laurent Pinchart, Ideas on Board

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Linux kernel offers three APIs to display video and graphics. While DRM/KMS, FB and V4L2 started as solutions to distinct problems, they now largely overlap.
