Diamond Stealth64 Video 3200?

Post by Dan Marsha » Mon, 05 Feb 1996 04:00:00



I have a new PCI video card and am having trouble using it with Linux  
(1.3.59).

SuperProbe reports:

        First video: Super-VGA
                Chipset: S3 (chipset unknown)
                Signature data: e188f003 (please report)
                Memory: 2048 Kbytes
                RAMDAC: Generic 8-bit pseudo-color DAC
                (with 6-bit wide lookup tables (or in 6-bit mode))

Card is a Diamond Stealth64 Video 3200 with 2MB.  
Manual info: Controller is S3 Vision968

I have not been able to configure anything but garbled X windows with a  
number of config files.  

Any tips?

   ^^^^^^
the X server version is much more important than showing that you're running
the bleeding edge linux kernel. this is even more important since

is too old for recent S3 cards with S3 968.

get XFree86 3.1.2.

a Sony Multiscan 15SF monitor and a P5-100 system.Can anyone who has managed to
start up his Xwindows with a S3 968 chip kindly provide me with a copy of the
XF86Config file.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
