Trident 8400 & M585LMR Motherboard probems

Post by B. Preisendorfe » Tue, 08 Feb 2000 04:00:00

Anybody out there ever get a Trident 8400 chipset to work under Xwindows?  I
have a PCChips m585LMR motherboard, with a built in video adapter, which
shows up under windows as a trident 8400.  I can't find a video driver, or a
reasonable substitue.  If anybody could help me, I'd appreciate it more than
a hungry ethiopian with a gift certificate to McDonalds.  Also, is it
possible to set up a framebuffer, at least until I can afford a new video
card?  Could someone explain this to me?  Thanks again,

1. X Server for Trident 8400 chipset

Unfortunately, the video card on my current computer is an on board AGP with
a Trident 8400 chipset.  Does anyone know of an XServer or driver for this
card/chipset?  I can get X Windows to run, but only in 16 color 640 x 480
mode.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
