We need to update the device driver for 2.3.45 or later kernels and submit patches to Linus.

    Works for me? Does that mean xscreensaver gears or similiar is working?
    Or that hardware acceleration has been verified in kernels since 2.3.45?

    I\'m running 2.3.51 and I still get:
    (==) TDFX(0): Silken mouse enabled
    (II) TDFX(0): direct rendering disabled

    Things still \"run\" but nothing is hardware accelerated.

    Fixes were made to make this work with the current 2.3 kernels.
