Details

An updated xorg-x11-drv-sis package that fixes one bug is now available for Red
Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

The xorg-x11-drv-sis package provides a video driver for SiS and XGI graphics
chips for the X.Org implementation of the X Window System.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Due to a missing XGIPowerSaving() function call in the xgi video driver's
source code, a server using XGI Z9-series graphics chipset was not able to
recover from power-saving mode. With this update, the XGIPowerSaving() function
call has been added and the server now recovers properly. (BZ#730649)

which fixes this bug.
