S3 Trio64v+ problems

Post by Eric Sandvi » Thu, 19 Nov 1998 04:00:00

I can't get Xwindows to run at a resolution higher than 8bit, I'm running
Redhat 5.1 and have been using Xconfigurator to configure the sever.  It
autodects my card and uses the s3 server.  Everytime I try to go to 16 bit
color I get a core dump.  Thanks for any help you can offer

I've got the same card, and in order to get to 16 bit color I had to add
another 1MB memory module on to the card for a total of 2MB card
memory.  I think the module was about 10 dollars.  Hope this helps.

Cannot get this stupid card to work on 4.3-STABLE, updated as of 2 nights ago.
Only way to get X Server to function is to use vga16 mode, anything else crashes the server.

Strangley though, it gives me a 800x600 virtual desktop.

Video Card:             2 meg S3 Trio64v+
Computer:                Pentium 120 - 32 meg of ram.
Operating System:    FreeBSD 4.3-STABLE. XFree86 3.3.6

Any ideas (or free graphics cards) welcome .......
