I'm almost positive that I've seen this posted...but I just spent about
an hour trying to search the archives and can't seem to find the
answer. What is the difference between the 2.6 kernel in rawhide and
the kernel that arjanv keeps in http://people.redhat.com/arjanv?
Thanks in advance!
If anyone is interested in trying the latest and greatest EPIA-M/KM-400 driver updates I've
been doing there is a via_drv.o module available at
Which you can drop into /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers, set your chipset to "via"
in /etc/X11/XF86Config and test. This should have everything in it that the nonfree
drivers have except 3D (which is going to need major work to fix up) and the MPEG
engine which is getting some initial investigation now- the biggest problem being that
X has no "mpeg slice engine" interface yet.

There are a number of good xmms input plugins which I would like to
suggest for FC2.
They are xmms-flac (available at freshrpms) and
These would allows FC users to use good patent-happy compression
techniques out of the box.
flac is an excellent lossless compression.
speex is an excellent speech compression. It is useful to have the xmms
plugin for conferences that store their talks in this format.
both plugins (and their source libraries) are available as free
software. I have been using both and they are very stable.
