Video driver list for Intel GEM

Drivers marked thus are believed to exist, or to have existed; but I don't have them. Drivers marked thus exist and I have them, but because their copyright messages refer to other companies than DRI I don't feel that I can distribute them.

In theory you should be able to download the drivers from this page and use them in the appropriate version of GEM. However, for best results you should install from a proper GEM distribution so that the correct fonts and any other support files get installed as well.

One good list of lost drivers is this archive.org mirror; the actual drivers aren't there, but the contents page still is.

ATI EGA Wonder 640x480 16 GEM51.SYS- These various drivers used to be available from ATI's website, but are not any more. GEM51 / GEM52 / GEM53 are based on a driver source tree somewhere between GEM/2.1 and GEM/2.2; ATI51-54 on the GEM/3.0 driver source. Some ATI EGA drivers can be found here and here.
