Late last month the open-source community was presented with Chrome 9 series DRM support
as the first step in providing 3D acceleration for these VIA IGPs atop a free software stack. Today we have been greeted with more patches from VIA's Bruce Chang.
The patches submitted to the DRI-devel mailing list
fix a system hang with multi X support, fix a system hang issue caused by 3D scaling+ACPI, and address a segmentation fault when playing video with AGP after resuming from the system suspend mode.
These VIA driver fixes will likely find their way into the Linux 2.6.29 kernel
