    Default New drivers available at VIA linux Portal

    Was browsing the VIA site and noticed that they still have a link to their Linux portal. Imagine my surprise when I found out that they still are updating their binary blobs. A Ubuntu 10.10 driver dated 1. April (the date does make me a bit suspicious) has support for the CN896 and VXxxx chipsets. This is an excerpt from the release note:

    Supported Chipsets
    Target system must contain one of the following VIA Chipsets:
       VIA VX800/VX855/VX900 Chipset
    Main Features
    This release contains the following major features:
    - Support XORG 7.5 
    - Support ACPI suspend to RAM and suspend to disk
    - Support HW Video overlay by X extension XV

    I would also like to know if anyone has tried these drivers. I would like to try them myself, but am a bit apprehensive, also because of the release date. If anyone has tried them, I would love to hear about it. Thank you.
