Trident 9440 video card

Post by David H. Dykstr » Tue, 11 Jul 1995 04:00:00



I am trying to get XF86 configured on a pentium 100 MHZ with a
Trident TGUI9440AGI video card without success.  Does anyone have
any solutions?  I have succeeded with the 16 color VGA mode but I
would like to take advantage of my 17" multiscan (MAG) monitor
with more colors.

Thanx for any help that can be offered.

I had the same problem. Below is a fix that worked for me.

. Does anybody know if XFree plans on supporting the excellerated mode for the
  Chips & Technology 65545 chip set (now or in the future)?

. Does anyone know how to get rid of the "bleeding" (shadows) at the edges of
  windows? Would the excellerated mode do this?

Okay, here's the help.  It doesn't work with the 9440 card yet.  That was
easy, now the harder part.  Check out comp.os.linux.x, I will be posting
the latest news on the video card there.  It just so happens that I got a
little more news on how development is going, and am going to post the new
information as well as some of the old information in a little bit.  So
keep an eye out over there and you'll find out all of the good and bad
news.  Unfortunately, it'll be more bad than good.

 I am currently maintaining the C&T driver, but have not much time to extend
it. Hence the driver will not support the 65545 accelerated features in near
future, but it is planned that it will eventually.

 These "bleedings" were not reported by other people using the driver. It has
nothing to do with the support of accelerated features. What version of the
driver do you use? (The most recent one is part of XFree 86 version 3.1.1.)
What clocks/modes?

1. Trident 9440 video card

I have a trident 9440, and I've seen a 16 color X server out there for
it.. but is there any servers for it that support more than that?  And
has anyone had any luck with SVGALib working with it?  Once I had it
running, without doing anything special and all the graphics programs
worked fine, but ever since then it just messes up the screen and I have
to hit escape..
