Hardware to Test
- VIA recently made drivers available under the GPL for some of its video hardware, including S3's ProSavage and ProSavage DDR integrated graphics controllers. The latter are found in VIA's KM/KN/PM/P4M/P4N266, VT8372, VT8375, VT8613, VT8703A and VT8751 chipsets. The following chipsets integrate the regular ProSavage: PL133/T, KL133/A, KM133/A series, VT8361/4, VT8364A, VT8365, VT8365A and VT8604. This needs to be investigated and a brief report written.
- VIA has also recently made drivers available for some of its Ethernet hardware. The source code release includes drivers for the Ethernet controllers built into VIA's VT6107, VT8231, VT8233/A/C, VT8235 and VT8237 South Bridge chips. Use has proven that the VT8237 chip works with both Gnewsense and Blag, as well as many other popular GNU/Linux distros.
If you have experiences with any of this hardware and how it works with Free Software, please send that information to <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
