Removal?

This discussion is still ongoing.

so as per bug #606132 x11-drivers/xf86-video-trident has been removed in 2017. How to deal with it today? — The preceding unsigned comment was added by Kosgorbunov (talkcontribs)

UPD:

Besides kernel I built driver for xorg as below:

git clone https://github.com/freedesktop/xorg-xf86-video-trident.git && cd xorg-xf86-video-trident && ./autogen.sh && ./configure --prefix=/usr/ && make && make install

Check that trident_drv.la, trident_drv.so appeared in the same folder as other existing drivers (in my case it resides in /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/ with vesa, intel and others).

Actually /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/trident.conf no more works, so deleted that config causing that:

root #tail /var/log/Xorg.0.log
Available kernel symlink targets:
[ 33204.734] Parse error on line 1 of section Files in file /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/trident.conf
  "Option" is not a valid keyword in this section.

After generating xorg.conf through "X -configure" I used to grind it with below to get working 1024x768:
