The Voodoo Linux Graphics Driver Gets Updated
In the event you are still using any 3Dfx Voodoo 1 or Voodoo 2 graphics cards, the X.Org Linux driver for them has been updated. No new features have been implemented for these outdated graphics cards, but the xf86-video-voodoo 1.2.1 driver just brings a couple of fixes to ensure the driver still works with the most recent X Server bits. The release announcement for the Voodoo Linux driver update can be found here.
The xf86-video-voodoo driver wasn't the only antiquated X.Org driver to get updated today, but so did the xf86-video-rendition driver for the old Rendition graphics cards. The Rendition driver just has two fixes, as mentioned in the release announcement.
Lastly, the unaccelerated xf86-video-sisusb driver for SiS chips connected via a USB adapter has too been updated. The xf86-video-sisusb 0.9.1 driver just has some build fixes and other minor fixes like the other two X.Org driver updates this morning.
