I have a Trident 9680 which worked (unfortunately, only 640x480, although it could handle 16-bit
mode) using the newest (which is now the second newest) version of the XFree server (=3.1.2F).
Although I have not tried the latest version (= 3.1.2G), I have heard that you will need to
install libncurses.so.3.0 and the latest version of ld.so if you want to use the newest X.
The latest X server can be found at ftp.xfree86.org/pub/XFree86/3.1.2G/Linux/Elf/312GSVGA.tgz
