Question Older savage DRI drivers


None of the drivers on dri.freedesktop.org/snapshots/ is working on my slackware. I have read somewhere that only older drivers are working. If someone has them please send me.

The components of the DRI have been moved into their respective upstream repositories. The DRI drivers reside within Mesa, and the 2D drivers reside in [X.Org http://www.x.org/]. The remaining component is the DRM, which is maintained in a git tree on freedesktop.org.
The above quote is from here.

Im using their DRM component (dated 2007-03-14) on my old IBM Thinkpad and it works fine.
