A short summary of improvements in XFree86 3.3.4/3.3.5:
Support for S3 Savage4 and Savage3D on x86; Support for S3 Trio3D/2X; Mach64 server bugfixes; PS/2 Mouse problem fixes; Rendition server fixes; Intel i740 support (donated by Precision Insight); SiS 530 and SiS 620 support; 3Dfx Voodoo Banshee and Voodoo3 support; Trident Blade3D, CyberBlade and Cyber9525 support; S3 Trio3D support; Matrox G400 support; NVIDIA Riva TNT2 support and better acceleration for all Riva chipsets (donated by NVIDIA); Rewritten Cyrix MediaGX support (donated by Cyrix); Updates and new hardware support (Acecad flair, Calcomp DrawingBoard) for xinput extension; Bug fixed for cards with S3 Aurora64V+ (M65) chip (VGA output should now work).
(1999-09-16) The MediaGX driver included in the 3.3.4 and 3.3.5 XFree86 releases is highly buggy. For this reason, we have reverted to the driver included in XFree86 22.214.171.124. Patches have also been applied to correct problems with some Trident cards and with SiS 6326 cards.
rpm -Uvh filename
where filename is the name of the RPM. In some circumstances, you may be required to add --force and/or --nodeps to the rpm command line options to insure a proper upgrade. Add these options if the command line given gives an error. You should upgrade at least the core XFree86 package, the font server (xfs) package, the libraries, and the server for your video card.
If you download all of the XFree86 updates into a directory and then execute the command:
rpm -UvhF *.rpm
only the RPMs that you already have installed will be upgraded.
