+Title: xorg-x11-7.4 and xorg-server-1.5 kernel support
+Author: Tobias Klausmann <klausman@gentoo.org>
+Content-Type: text/plain
+Posted: 2009-07-12
+Revision: 1
+News-Item-Format: 1.0
+Display-If-Installed: x11-base/xorg-server
+Display-If-Profile: default-linux/alpha
+Display-If-Profile: default/linux/alpha
+
+Recent versions of xorg's X11 require kernel support to access PCI and AGP
+graphic cards. This support has only recently been added to the Linux kernel
+(sys-kernel/vanilla-sources-2.6.30 and sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-2.6.29-r5).
+Thus, you will need to run a recent enough kernel to use recent versions of X11
+on an alpha. If you only start programs on your alpha, but the display is on
+another machine, no upgrade is necessary.
+
+Furthermore, not all graphics card drivers have been updated to work with the
+newer X server API. One example is the glint driver used for Permedia cards. The
+upstream developers have been informed about this, but no fixes are available
+yet, please see https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=21546
+
+For a general guide to upgrading to Xorg 1.5, see the Gentoo upgrade guide:
+http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/desktop/x/x11/xorg-server-1.5-upgrade-guide.xml
