VIA Releases Driver Sources

April 16th, 2005 by Crusader

A reader pointed out that VIA Technologies has announced their own driver source code release:

Of particular interest to the growing number of Linux enthusiasts and customers utilizing VIA EPIA mainboards, is the source for the S3 Graphics UniChrome family display driver for version 2.6.x kernels. The UniChrome family display driver supports the VIA CLE266 and the new VIA CN400 Digital Media chipsets featured on the popular VIA EPIA M series and VIA EPIA SP series mainboards respectively, and will provide developers with the flexibility to autonomously incorporate support for latest applications based on VIA hardware.

On top of the UniChrome drivers, VIA also offers display driver sources for the VIA ProSavage and ProSavage DDR integrated graphics controllers as well as the integrated Network driver source supporting six VIA Chipset South Bridges.

VIA Arena is hosting the downloads; there’s also commentary at their message boards.

    It’s gratifying to see hardware manufacturers getting used to the concept of open drivers; hopefully this trend continues over the near-term.
