Make Geode X.org driver work
Last modified: 2008-03-21 18:12:17 EDT
This is tracking bug to make the Geode driver xorg-x11-drv-amd work with
X.org-1.3 of Fedora 8. Then later make it work with Fedora 9 by porting to
Current status and TODO of the driver is kept here.
Compiling the driver by yourself (not the RPM package) and changing xorg.conf by
yourself ("X -configure" won't work) works on my F6, F7 and F8 machines.
It depends on the BIOS of on your Geode board actually.
Fedora 8: 3 patches for X86EMU necessary for Geode are built in xorg-x11-server.
Waiting for new upstream release of 22.214.171.124 before pushing to updates.
Fedora 9: Waiting for 126.96.36.199 as well.
xorg-x11-server-188.8.131.52-44.fc8, xorg-x11-drv-amd-184.108.40.206-2.fc8 has been pushed to the Fedora 8 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
