Mmmm, I've had probs with the XF86_SVGA server and my DMM Stealth 3D 2000.
When I SuperProbed the card (under Slakware 3.3, 2.0.30) I was told to use
the SVGA server ... so I did. After coming out of X, my console was
thrashed -- covered in flaky characters. It wasn't like trying to more a
binary; I could still read the text, there were just a few characters that
had been "replaced". I've since switched back to the XF86_S3V server and
have had no problems since ... well not with that, anyway.
