47091XFree 4.1/2/3 driver issue
- Jun 1, 2004My new laptop uses an S3/Savage. The 4.3 drivers (which are
OpenSource) do not seem to suport 3D acceleration (or MPEG, but that's
a small issue).
The there are 4.1 drivers available from S3's website. By all reports
they not only support 3D(OpenGL) but the kitchen sink (S-Video out etc).
What I'm wonder is what are the benifits of XFree 4.3 over 4.1, or
for that mater X.org?
Is 4.3 THAT much better that it is worth giving up 3D acceleration?
Can you get antialiased fonts in 4.1?
