Hi,
On 2 March 2006, Luc Verhaegen removed the support
for the VT3118. This means that versions above 0.2.3
DO NOT WORK ANYMORE on EPIA SP13000.

So far, I did have a crash on resizing the video
window, but at least I could use my Mini-ITX box!

Any plans to re-add the support in via_driver.c? Add
the dotclock?

Thanks,
Hervé.

    I never removed support.

    How could I? Support was never there to begin with.

    The commit you blame for this is me stopping the driver from
    lying about this.

    -ENO_F-ING_HW

    You know, FAQs and manpages exist for a reason.

    The main page claims support, so please update it too
    then!

    The main page also says: "Sadly, support for VT3108, VT3118,
    VT3344 and VT3157 ranges from limited to non-existant."

    I just implemented quite a lot of VT3108, on hardware i paid
    for myself. Feel free to donate one of your kidneys for
    VT3118. Because that sometimes does seem what people expect
    me to do.

    Do you have any idea how much time and effort i've put in
    the unichrome driver over what will be 3 years tomorrow?

    I do not quite understand your [over-]reaction...

    I am a happy user of your driver, and tried to update to
    the latest so I could potentially help find and correct a
    bug I have (crash on resize).

    I then realised that a line had been added to prevent the
    driver from initialising, and created a bug about it.

    I then got shouted at, told than I should read the FAQ
    (which I had already done) and manpages.

    What would you prefer as a user: a usually working,
    sometimes failing but re-startable system, or no system at
    all?
