Include more SiS chipset video card & Atmel Wireless LAN dri

Post by cwlee » 2005/03/15 02:00:22

Hi guys,

Is it possible to include these [url=http://www.winischhofer.at/linuxsisvga.shtml]SiS chipset video-card drivers[/url] into the future CENTOS releases?

Also, how about adding in the [url=http://atmelwlandriver.sourceforge.net/news.html]Atmel wireless LAN drivers[/url] as well?

Thanks! :-D

Answering my own question, I'd found that SiS video cards driver support is much better in CentOS 4. I didnt need to install it separately as before. Just that the autoprobing during installation didn't work out so well. I have a Xabre card which is compatible to SiS 300 series, the probing didn't realise that. Hence, I thought I'd to install the driver myself again, until I took a careful look at the list.

As for the ATMEL driver, I'd managed to install it successfully. But would be nice if it comes preinstalled.
