I know its a old post, and i dig out this post from a cript but just to finish it..

You can use the openchrome driver to use this card with Fedora, but it will only have support for 2D and Video, MPEG hardware decompression.

There a driver in "viaarena.com" but i cant make it work in Fedora 8..

Cheers! :eek:
