Has anyone had success getting x to work with Linux on
a recent Gateway 2000 system with the STB video card?

Thanks.

I have a gateway with a stb trio 64 video card (S3 764 chipset)and running
X with no problems.  Make sure, however, that you have version 3.1.2 of
XFREE86, version 3.1.1 doesn't support the particular chipset (assuming
your gateway stb card has the same chip).

Could you please be a little more explicit in how you managed to get
Linux X to work with the STB Trio64V graphic card??
During instalation/configuration, the systems asks for the clock
speeds on the chip for which I have yet to find any information about
and as far as I recall, I'm using version 3.12 of the build.

TIA
