There are free unichrome drivers.  See  It's not
clear to me why they haven't been incorporated into the official
distribution.  Perhaps Red Hat could add them as a patch?  That would be a huge
help since it would save all us poor unichrome owners from having to compile the
entire distribution!

Comment 2 Avi Kivity 2006-03-22 10:22:09 UTC
FC5 includes the via driver.
