Bug Fixes

Previously, the MGA driver rendered the image incorrectly on big-endian architectures, including PowerPC and 64-bit PowerPC. Consequently, the display showed altered colors. With this update, the colors are displayed correctly in the described scenario.
Previously, the MGA driver caused a shift in the video screen. Consequently, the screen became corrupted and the windows were pushed around randomly. This update, modifies the code so that the MGA driver no longer causes problems for the video screen.


This update adds support for ServerEngines Pilot III to the xorg-x11-drv-mga packages.
All users of the Xorg x11 MGA driver, are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs and add this enhancement.
