Open source stack for CUDA implementation is complete!

Shinpei Kato to
“My research project has developed a fully open-source set of the device driver and runtime library for CUDA. We still need an NVIDIA’s compiler (nvcc) to compile programs (Gallium3D is not yet ready for CUDA/OpenCL), but nothing else is required. In fact, NVIDIA has released an open-source compiler, hence all pieces of CUDA software stack are now open-source!”

p.s: apparently gdev has some nice extension as well which would make communication between the host and the device to be more robust.

that is really awesome news! do you know if this is functional? I guess I can try it when I get a fast enough nv card.

Gdev does not fully support CUDA yet

hmm… anyone used cycles under Gdev yet?
