Just for the record, neither vesa nor vga work either.

I found this package on the CD from 2007.0:


Hopefully that is what you meant.

I have never tried to back level a version until now. When I try to install version 1.6.5-2 (using 'urpmi'), even using --oldpackage, it fails. I get 3 errors refering to "conflicts with a file in package ..." where the referenced package is the newer version of the driver, 2.1.1-4 and the files are /usr/lib/, /usr/lib/ and /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/ Do I need to uninstall the newer package first or did I do something else wrong?
