i740fb is a frame buffer device driver for Intel740 based video boards.
It's highly experimental code, but is guaranteed to work on my computer,
with my "PowerColor C740 AGP" board, and with me "between chair and
keyboard". Many people also were pleased with the driver. The main page
is located at http://i740fbdev.sourceforge.net,
Please report any success or failure to me
(Andrey Ulanov <firstname.lastname@example.org>).
This driver (should) work as a module or compiled into kernel. You can apply the patch
patch-version-i740fb-yymmdd.diff.gz to your linux source tree.
You also can download i740fb-yymmdd.tar.gz to compile i740fb as a module.
Last versions of these files are available from
Then configure your kernel as usual: choose "m" or "y" to "Intel740
support" in section "console->frame-buffer support". Compile, install,
have fun... and please drop me a report :)
