I am trying to get my X environment going and am having little success.
I've read through lots of docs and FAQs, and followed some threads in
this newsgroup claiming the SVGA server works fine with this card,
however I can't get it to work. XMetro gets me into X, but it's VGA mode
is the best I can do and it very ugly.
I want to get XFree86 to work, so I upgraded to the latest 3.3.2
version. When completing Xconfigurator, I execute "startx" and the
screen goes black. I have to reboot to get the system back.
The system is a Pentium II 300 MHz, Diamond Viper V300 AGP video card,
NEC Multisync 21'' monitor.
