Let me disagree with your broad statement about VIA.

Gigabyte GA-6VTXE-A mobo with VIA 694T chipset works just great here
with SuSE from 8.1 through 9.1. I've been using FIC mobo PA2013 with
VIA chipset until version 8.1 with no problems either.

On the other hand, I have had rather bad experience with Intel L440GX
mobo in VA Linux boxes. Non-SMP kernels didn't initialize interrupt
controller properly and onboard SCSI controller didn't work.

Does it mean that Intel is junk? I don't think so.

Please next time be more specific when you proclaim something junk.

Thank you, -Kastus
