VIA Technologies today announced the extension of its open source support with the release of driver source code for specific VIA hardware.

Some of the source released is for the S3 Graphics UniChrome family display driver for version 2.6.x kernels. The UniChrome family display driver supports the VIA CLE266 and the new VIA CN400 Digital Media chipsets featured on the VIA EPIA M series and VIA EPIA SP series mainboards, and will provide developers with the flexibility to autonomously incorporate support for latest applications based on VIA hardware.

“With this approach to driver support we are broadening our contribution to the open source community, bringing a valuable software element to our total silicon platforms,” commented Steve Charng, head of VIA’s software development.

VIA is also offering source display drivers for the VIA ProSavage and ProSavage DDR integrated graphics controllers as well as the integrated network driver source supporting six VIA southbridge chips.
