1992: Created a Linux kernel driver for the 16-bit Future
Domain SCSI adapter.
1993-1995: Coordinated the Linux Man Page Project (wrote
dozens and edited hundreds of man pages);
maintained the util-linux utility collection.
1994: Created complete operating system distribution (Bogus) for Linux that could be easily and
automatically rebuilt from original sources. This work
introduced the "pristine source plus patches" paradigm to the
1995: Designed and implemented a prototype of RPM that
encapsulated the ``pristine source plus patches'' paradigm
(under contract to Red Hat Software).
1997: Co-architected a network protocol (DICT) for the
transport of dictionary information and wrote a client and
server for this protocol.
1998-2000: Co-architect of the Direct Rendering
Infrastructure (DRI) for the XFree86 X server (this work
introduced fast direct-rendered 3D graphics to the Linux world).
Other X11 work during this period includes:
Designed kernel-level module architecture (DRM) to support
the DRI under Linux; and implemented several kernel-level
DRI/DRM drivers (e.g., 3Dlabs GMX-2000, 3dfx Voodoo3).
Designed and implemented several full kernel-level DRI/DRM
drivers. 3Dlabs GMX-2000, 3dfx Voodoo3, and ATI Rage 128
Implemented 2D XFree86 device driver for ATI Rage 128 card.
Designed and implemented Shared Memory Transport (SMT) for
XFree86 by modifying low-level XFree86 protocol transport
routines. This was submitted to XFree86 with the
recommendation that it not be accepted -- performance
analysis showed that, when video cards are well-matched to
the CPU and memory subsystem, SMT is not a win.
I no longer work on the DRI -- please don't send me email
2001-2004: Implemented Distributed Multihead X,
including performance analysis and design of input subsystem and
2003-2004: Implemented SELinux-compatible audit infrastructure
for Linux 2.6 kernel.
