      Is this even worth reporting?

        do these drivers supply any form of hardware acceleration, or are they pretty much just there so you can configure additional screens with xorg.conf and a full color spectrum?

            Why do you insist on belittling the work of others?

              I don't insist, and they're belittling themselves by working for a whooping user-base of like 25 users, actually even less since probably not all of them are Linux users.

                If they had fixed the i740 driver two years ago, they'd have 26 users.

                  The new xf86-video driver releases this weekend are for APM, i740, Newport, S3, and S3Virge. These are DDX drivers for old and rather obscure graphics processors.
                  Old? yes. Obscure? No.

                    Just to be clear, are you saying that those drivers should be killed off ? Those are the only two choices -- keep them working with new versions of X or kill them off.
