Description crichton 1999-05-06 19:39:39 UTC
From the video4linux mailing list, here's a bugfix that will
fix a problem with DGA and the G200 (and possibily other
newer Matrox cards)

DGA doesn't return the correct FB address, so things that
need direct FB access (like xawtv) have terrible
workarounds/kernel hacks/whatnot to get around this X bug.

This patch correctly fixes X, and doesn't affect recent
XawTV versions
