RE: re: openchrome and native Xorg


I've manually compiled openchrome 0.2.904 on 5.99.21. It compiles and runs 
(quite) fine.
The only issue is that my TV-out output is scrambled.
Full logs are here (if anyone cares ;) :

My real problem is that I thought I would go back to 5.0_STABLE and the via(4) 
driver but it doesn't seem to be compiled anymore... I checked the xserver 
package from "NetBSD-daily/netbsd-5/200911020000Z/i386" and there is neither 
via nor openchrome driver... It seems to exists in 5.0.1 release though.

Is this a known issue|feature ?
Shouldn't I be using 5.0_STABLE rather than 5.0.1 ?
The thing is I run all my xen domU in 5.0_STABLE and have a compile domU that 
provides binary packages update for all those NetBSD box. Using 5.0.1 on my VIA 
box would require another domU to provide the binary packages than I compile 
from WIP.

Where would I find an "official" state and directions for 
via(4)/openchrome(4)/unichrome drivers ?
