VIA S3 Unichrome driver on fedora 3 x86_64

I hav a VIA S3 Unichrome integrated graphics chip on an MSI motherboard. The processor i use is an AMD 64 athlon. I hav installed Fedora Core 3 x86_64 on my pc. Everything went well but i couldnt get the driver for the integrated graphics chip. I 'd like to know what driver would be best for it and where i can get it.

Use xorgconf or whatever you use to configure X, then edit the config file and replace the video driver with "via", thats all it takes, Id make sure your monitor settings and color settings you want are done correctly, then edit the file.Dont expect much from it though, it isnt very good, it works that about all I can say. try there, they might have a driver for you that isnt the generic "via" solution above.
