    I have two laptops with 855GME chipsets so it's nice to seem some work on the drivers for old hardware.

    Yeah, but the article was about the also free Intel driver. Continuing support for older cards is pretty much excellent with radeon, and it is nice to see that things seem to be good with Intel.

    Intel still updates its P4 IGP.

    I have both and use P4 with i845 for tiny media server/desktop internet mini-PC.

    If you want, I can retest the hardware and push the bug. I even have old rage128 somewhere!


    THANK YOU INTEL!

    Definitively can not confirm crazycheese's results, although that does not dismiss them. Maybe an isolated bug?
