Description: New video driver rpm package for "ASPEED Technologies" video
hardware.  This video driver is new to the X11R7.1 release, and supports
a single new video card produced by ASPEED.

The rpm package I have prepared was created by copying the existing Fedora
Core "mga" driver package, and doing search and replace s/mga/ast/ on it.

Rationale for including this package, is to be able to provide the complete
set of all video drivers supplied by X.Org for the architectures we support.

Testing:  We do not have any ASPEED video hardware, and are relying on the
testing performed by ASPEED themselves, X.Org as part of the X11R7.1 release,
and the users who are already using the driver from downloading and building
it themselves.

I have filed a tracking bug for this as well:

Package meets guidelines, builds on appropriate arches, and passes rpmlint. 

Also adding to dist, assuming Bill would say yes (:
Comment 3 Jesse Keating 2006-06-17 17:41:26 EDT
I went ahead and added it to bugzilla as well.

Sure, works for me. What's an ASPEED?

Aspeed Technologies is the name of the company that produces the hardware.
They contributed their driver to XFree86 (4.6.0) and X.Org (7.1).

Package was pushed to rawhide.
