Re: Patched XOrg to get r128 working?

Wow, I did not expect that.

I can understand the need to clean up things, but at the same time it is sad to see how support is gradually lost for old machines.

I am sincerely grateful for the work people is doing to bring support back to those old beautiful machines.

Thank you

Another developer (who works on VoidPPC) said r128 needs patched to even work….
I don’t even know what he did to get it working over there.

I suggest asking him what he did and then - if it's a patch that's necessary -
we can include it in the xorg package for the r128 driver.

The r128 driver package was removed from Debian unstable [1, 2]. I can try to
build one tomorrow - if it actually still builds - and provide it to you.

Not sure whether the driver is still maintained upstream.
