whose savage driver is it anyway ?
|[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]|
All, I read about the daily snapshots of binary modules (a good and long outstanding feature) in http://www.xfree86.org/pipermail/forum/2003-April/001302.html and downloaded the file "savage_drv.o" from http://www.xfree86.org/~alanh/drivers/x86/ . Then I ran "strings savage_drv.o | grep 1.1" and got this output: driver (version 1.1.26t) for S3 Savage chipsets 1.1.26t It so happens that in http://www.xfree86.org/support.html , there is a link to the "S3 Savage Driver" page http://www.probo.com/timr/savage40.html where it clearly says that "1.1.26t" is the version of the driver that Tim Roberts released on Dec 4, 2002 (the latest release on his page is 1.1.27t). Its customery for his releases to have the extra "t" at the end to distinguish his release from the official XFree86 release. So, if the savage driver binary in http://www.xfree86.org/~alanh/drivers/x86/ is not the official cvs version, it should not have the "t" at the end. And if it is Tim robert's unofficial driver, why is the version still the older 1.1.26t, when the newer 1.1.27t is already available ? thanks - Nil _______________________________________________ Forum mailing list Forum@XFree86.Org http://XFree86.Org/mailman/listinfo/forum
