Help! S3: Unknown S3 chipset: chip_id=0xfffff0e1 ref.31

Post by YUEN KA » Thu, 07 Sep 1995 04:00:00

After I config the display and monitor type using xf86config, then use the command " startx" to start X windows, I encounter this error message and then stopped.  I have a diamond stealth 64 VRAM, but after reading the suggestions from the newsgroup as well as and modified the XF86Config manually, I still got this message.  

Please help!!  Thanks



1. Help with new S3 video card: S3: Unknown S3 chipset chip_id = 0x31e1 rev. 61


For a friend without internet i do have a question.
He has a new bought S3 PCI 2MB (i thought a Trio64) video card and want to
run X now :)

When trying to start X he gets the message:

(--) S3: Mode "400x300" needs hsync freq of 48.08 kHz. Deleted.
(--) S3: Mode "480x300" needs hsync freq of 39.56 kHz. Deleted.
(--) S3: Mode "480x300" needs hsync freq of 48.00 kHz. Deleted.
(**) FontPath set to
S3: Unknown S3 chipset:
chip_id = 0x31e1 rev. 61

 *** None of the configured devices were detected.***

Does anyone know what could be the problem here?
