          I have two laptops with 855GME chipsets so it's nice to seem some work on the drivers for old hardware.

            My ancient Radeon 7500/9200 cards that I still use in certain machines received new updates with the radeon driver less than a year ago...

            Still, nice to see that I can still sometimes see updates for the graphics chip in my brothers Lenovo.

                He seems to talking about AMD's catalyst driver, not the OSS driver. They do tend to be too quick to label cards "Legacy" with catalyst.

                  Yeah, but the article was about the also free Intel driver. Continuing support for older cards is pretty much excellent with radeon, and it is nice to see that things seem to be good with Intel.

                    how do I install it?

                    can I even install it or do I have to wait for kernel 3.8 ????

                      R100 (radeon 64 DDR) with opensource driver is broken.

                      Intel still updates its P4 IGP.

                      I have both and use P4 with i845 for tiny media server/desktop internet mini-PC.

                      If you want, I can retest the hardware and push the bug. I even have old rage128 somewhere!


                      THANK YOU INTEL!

                        Definitively can not confirm crazycheese's results, although that does not dismiss them. Maybe an isolated bug?

                          r200 is also a clusterfuck

                          mine was.


                          when I switched to an intel platform I can say that at least I had no more headaches with gfx

                            2.20.14 continues the trend of adding about as many new bugs as fixes, 2.20.13 had some minor bad rendering which was quickly fixed in git, but 2.20.14 now gives a short freeze shortly after startx followed by the gpu hung + gpu reset routine. GM45 SNA, I won't have time to debug it thoroughly until Sunday.

                              For me R200 always was and still is solid gold.

                              And yet the Intel in my mother's computer can not even WINE Zoo Tycoon for her...
