i've downloaded the driver...
yes it looks like have no Xv, and no driver source (only src for kernel
anyway looking at the driver binary:
(GNU) 2.96 20000731 (Red Hat Linux 7.1 2.96-98)
they must be mad :)
so, the conclusion: one less opensource supporters on the vga line... :(
even the ati radeon 8500 driver is binary-only.
but there is at least opensource Xv and vidix for ATI cards...
