xserver-xorg-video-openchrome 1:0.2.904+svn827-1ubuntu0.1 source package in Ubuntu
xserver-xorg-video-openchrome (1:0.2.904+svn827-1ubuntu0.1) lucid-proposed; urgency=low * Add 100_video_save.patch: Fix hard lockup when switching VT or resuming from suspend on Via VX800. Cherrypick of upstream r838. Copies only exactly the registers needed rather than crudely memcpy'ing them, which can lead to hangs on 64-bit systems.

- xserver-xorg-video-openchrome: X.Org X server -- VIA display driver
OpenChrome is a project for the development of free and open-source drivers
for the VIA UniChrome video chipsets.
Originally called the 'snapshot' release, since it was a snapshot of an
experimental branch of the unichrome cvs code, this is a continued development
of the open source unichrome driver (from http://
unichrome. sf.net) which
also incorporates support for the unichrome-pro chipsets.
Support for hardware acceleration (XvMC) for all chipsets has subsequently
been ripped out of the unichrome.sf.net driver. Therefore your only option if
you wish to make use of the acceleration features of your VIA chip with free
and open-source drivers is to use this version of the driver.
- xserver-xorg-video-via: X.Org X server -- VIA display driver (dummy transitional package)
This transitional package helps users transition to the OpenChrome driver.
Once this package and its dependencies are installed you can safely remove it.
