Comment 5 Mike A. Harris 2004-07-06 22:19:30 EDT
The via driver included in FC1 is an experimental driver taken from
XFree86 CVS not long after it was contributed.  Since that time,
the driver has undergone a lot of active development by via and other
developers, and has been cleaned up significantly.

It is recommended for users of via video hardware to upgrade to
Fedora Core 2 in order to use the newer via driver.

Setting status to "CURRENTRELEASE" of FC2.
