Very doubtful as it's a mix of his and other's property. I'm not sure how useful it would be without the rest of the source.

I'd love to see him release his Umilator source though (Amithlon v.2), that was all his.

In other news.....

For those using the Matrox G550 PCIe card we may have some good news. We've patched Amithlon to remove the 4MB video ram limit on Matrox cards. We've had 1600x1200 @ 32bit color working on a test machine with the Matrox G550 PCIe and availp96 reporting the card as 16MB.
More testing needs to be done, and be aware that the 4 MB limit was put in place because back then Matrox cards had issues with the framebuffer in linux crossing over the 4 MB boundary. This was Amithlon following with what linux was doing and forcing a limit of available ram. There may be some graphical issues/errors that happen with the limit removed.
Once more testing is completed we will hopefully be able to release a patch utility to use. More details as they develop.

Did you try to ask him in one of your threads?

No, I'd asked him stuff directly through PMs with no response, and most of his thread posting are more directly related to things people either state incorrectly about Amithlon or technical reasons why things were done the way they were.

I'd rather see him occasionally add to the thread than to annoy him away. My friend assisting me with deconstructing Amithlon has reached out as well with direct technical info/questions, also with no response.

Definitely doing more testing. This is not compatible with kernel 4 so we are looking to see if there are more incompatibilities created from kernel 4, as this works with Bernie's "new_emubox.gz" and Gary's "kern310" kernels.

Would be so awesome if we could find Gary's 3.10 kernel source code as all we have is the 3.00_test source.
