Can't find some VIA driver's for my chipsets ..


Hi guy's.

I am running Gentoo with 2.4.25-gentoo-r2 kernel on a 900Mhz AMD cpu, 384Mb SD-RAM's, .. and witch a K7VZA motherboard. On that motherboard are some VIA chipset's: VT8363/VT8363A & VT82C686A/VT82C686B. Now, from my own expiriance when i used to run windows on this pc installing the (4-in-1) VIA driver's makes a huge difference in preformance. But now i'm running linux, and i notice the same 'slowness' when i didn't install the via driver's on windows. So i went searching for some linux via driver's but it's very complicated and i don't find the right driver's.
So can anyone help me with this? Wich driver's i should install and where i can find then etc ..

Thanks already !

P.S.: my english isn't that good so sorry for the wrong words.

Have you tried starting here: http://www.viaarena.com/ ?

Take a look, starting from their Drivers section.

Good luck!
