UniChrome Pro II & UI2
« on: August 06, 2008, 01:50:23 pm »
I have been searching the forums, and the wiki for information on the UniChrome chipsets. The forums all indicate that they work, but not with UI2. The wiki's indicate that UI2 works flawlessly and that VIA has recently open sourced their drivers. What exactly is the status of this chipset without using the licensed drivers from Fiire?

Empty promises at this stage.

Has anyone attempted the openChrome drivers in conjunction with the steps from this wiki howto http://wiki.openchrome.org/tikiwiki/tiki-index.php?page=EXAAcceleration

Allegedly openChrome has accelerated composite mode. According to the wiki there are some hoops to jump through, but it should work, should it not?

the composite support in openchrome is still very broken at this stage. again, the most anyone has ever gotten out of openchrome is ui1. ui2 masking almost works...

I have confirmed tschak's results with my fiire stations.
The only intuitive interface is the nipple.  After that it's all learned.
