Description Mike A. Harris 2006-06-17 03:02:35 EDT
Description of problem:
A new video driver - 'ast' - is present upstream, but not part of
Fedora currently.  We should add it, create a .xinf file for it,
and update the xorg-x11-drivers package.

[Private note to self: Update xorg-all-drivers.txt also.]
Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2006-06-17 03:49:33 EDT
I've created an ast driver rpm now, from a copy of the mga spec file.
Builds successfully locally, but no hardware to test with.

jkeating: Can you add "xorg-x11-drv-ast" as a new package for dist-fc6?

Once it's added, I'll get dkl to add a component in bugzilla for it.
Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2006-06-17 03:50:48 EDT
xorg-x11-drv-ast checked into cvs.dist as well
Comment 3 Mike A. Harris 2006-06-17 04:07:39 EDT
ast.xinf has been updated from PCI IDs listed in driver source
Comment 4 Jesse Keating 2006-06-17 09:32:58 EDT
Mike, new packages need to go though the proper process as outlined here:
