Julien Cristau of Debian has released updated versions of some of the older X.Org DDX drivers.

Released this week by Cristau was xf86-video-neomagic 1.2.9, xf86-video-savage 2.3.8, and xf86-video-siliconmotion 1.7.8.

The NeoMagic DDX update has just a few basic fixes for working against the latest versions of the X.Org Server. The Savage driver for old S3 video accelerators also is more friendly to newer X.Org Servers and has a few random fixes. Last but not least the Silicon Motion DDX update works in with X.Org Server 1.17+ and has various fixes.
