3DFX Linux Framebuffer Driver Page

(for the Linux kernel, naturally)




After a long break, I'm trying to continue the development of the tdfx driver. Currently, it supports the Voodoo Banshee, Voodoo 3, and Voodoo 5 cards. The driver is reported to work on x86, MIPS, and PPC platforms.

Latest patch:  There are minor, non functional modifications since v0.2.2, so I didn't create a new version number for this one...

       3DFX FB driver version v0.2.2 +minor patches2    (2001-05-07, against linux 2.4.4)

       3DFX FB driver version v0.2.2 +minor patches    (2001-05-01, against linux 2.4.4)

How to use the patch:
    - download the patch
    - download and extract the kernel source undex /usr/src/linux
    - apply the patch:
        cd /usr/src
        gunzip -cd <patchfile-s name> | patch -p0
    - then compile the kernel. That's all.
