Thank you for your effort, as visible on my YT channel I also like to play with nice vintage gear.


I guess 1.19 was with XAA already removed? For really vintage hardware and applications choosing the last xorg-server with XAA might make sense, so one can get this solid lines, fills, and such accelerated, ..?

Keep up the good work,
maybe I find some spare time to contribute S3/Virge or 3dfx fixes another day ;-)
