Update to the Matrox Parhelia Driver 1.4.3 to work with Linux kernel 2.6.15
Today I installed the Sliding Snow Leopard
(better known as Linux kernel 2.6.15) on my workstation and recognized, that the current Matrox driver does not build flawlessly anymore - surprise, surprise.
This time, the patching wasn't that difficult, because there has just been
one symbol removed from pci_ids.h because it was unreferenced inside the
kernel tree, sigh.
I just finished an email I wrote to the - in my opinion - responsible person
for this and so I hope that he will put the symbol in again for the next
To all you folks with Parhelia Cards outside, here is the updated driver:
* Added the definition of PCI_DEVICE_ID_AL_M1531 to mtx_drv.h if the kernel
under which it is compiled is >= 2.6.15
* Replaced docs/readme-1_4_3.txt with the new version from the website
* Added docs/readme-1_4_3-advanced.txt for further installation and
configuration notes (also from the website)
