Diamond Stealth 3D 2000 under Linux???

Post by Luis A. Espina » Fri, 05 Sep 1997 04:00:00



I'm planning to setup X on a machine that has a Diamond Stealth 3D 2000
video card, but I do not know what X server I need to install. Rather
than find it out by trial and error, I wanted to know if someone could
share his/her experiences in this matter.
Any help will be appreciated.
Luis Espinal.

It uses the S3 svga chip.  It works fine - I am ordering another
($50 with 2mb ram) from www.aten.com.  Good and reliable.

With XFree86 3.3 both the S3V and SVGA servers work well.

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.

It's a fine board under XF3.3 using the SVGA driver.  Here's my
