Description of problem:
Hi , sorry for my english , i'm a french school student.
Sorry if my thread isn't in the good forum, but, i want to know if i
can suggerate an integration of driver in the futures fedoras :

I'vea laptop Aspire 1350, with a "Via/S3 KN400/KM400" graphic chipset.
I want to know if the fedora's team can build these drivers on Fedora.
I'm a newbie, and it's very difficult to install them. There is a
sourceforce project (unichrome)but, it's under Xfree (and fedora is
Xorg yeah?)
Maybe, an automatic installation will be more easy for the newbies
like me.I don't know if i'm in the the right place to suggerate it to
the team ..
That's contribuate to an extension of Fedora, and more compatibility ....
And the driver already exists (but they are very ****ly to install)

Thanks you to have read me (my english's so bad)
And , thanks you to answer me

Ciao , and good luck with these wonderfull Distro !

The best way to get new drivers into Fedora Core, is to file a
request for enhancement bug report in X.Org bugzilla to get the
driver included in a future X.Org release.  Once it is included
in X.Org, it will make it into rawhide and into a future Fedora
Core release.
