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:
gunzip -cd <patchfile-s name> | patch -p0
- then compile the kernel. That's all.
