Xwindows with STB Velocity

Post by Shawn T. Hanata » Thu, 18 Jan 1996 04:00:00



Hi,

I'm trying to get Xwindows system to work with my STB Velocity Video card
(w/samsung 17gli).  I was wondering if anybody was successful with
setting up Xwindows with the STB velocity.  If so what were your
configurations.  I'm trying to use the S3 server, but I still can't get
it to work.  

Thanks

suported in XFree86 3.1.2 (not before that release).
what are your problems, please include output of X server and SuperProbe.

I thought it was a breeze to get XFree86 working with it.  Just use version
3.1.2, or later, of XFree86, and read README.S3.

I believe that the Velocity uses the S3 968 chipset.  Older versions of
XFree86 don't support this chipset.  There are 2 things that I would
try:

1.) Get the latest version of XFree86.
2.) Try using an 868 server (the 968 is a superset of the 868)

The only reason that I know this is because I helped a friend with an
STB card (I think it was the Velocity...).  However, I may be wrong on
all counts.

I just finished installing it. I have Slackware 3.0. When I ran XF86Config it made two
mistakes in the final configuration file. It misnamed the RAMDAC (IBMRGB52x) and it
put no value in for the vertsync rate.  After I modified these values, away it went.

HTH,
Bob
