            New release? yeah.. sure...
            AGP still doesn't work on my KT400 Via board... and the console is still just as unusable after leaving X.

            I wonder if any fixes actually made it in.....

            Does Neverwinter Nights work again yet?
            So does anybody know if they've fixed the problem with Neverwinter Nights that the previous driver had? There's no point me upgrading from 4496 until there is a version which actually works with the only OpenGL program I regularly run, and they have no recognisable message about this in the README...

            ... actually you know what's weird? I have 4496 installed right now, on kernel 2.6, and everything works fine.

            Look at minion.de (http://minion.de) for the patches needed. In ALT Linux (http://freshmeat.net/projects/alt-linux/)'s 2.6.0 package set, that's integrated among other things.

            http://www.minion.de/ has patches to make various drivers work, I've had success with them so far...

            linux kernel 2.6.x support?
            So, when will they release a driver update for the new 2.6.0 kernel?
            It shouldn't be hard to do, just some interface changes (I supose..)
