3.1.2e (a.out) for S3-968 -- still some dashed lines ;-(

3.1.2e (a.out) for S3-968 -- still some dashed lines ;-(

I Tested the new 312e release on my old slackware 2.3 a.out system.  It was
last running 312d, before I started migrating over to redhat/elf 3.0.3.

In the release notes, it says something to the effect of:

[start-quote]

  3.5.  S3 server
        ...
     o  S3 dashed lines are finally fixed.

[end-quote]

While I CAN say that they're _almost_ fixed, they're not entirely gone.  So
far, though, 312e is a big improvement on my card (ds64 video 4m vram; ibm
ramdac/220) over 312d.  And, 312d was better than 312.  (On 311, it was
non-functional) ;-)

At work, I'll try this code on a #9 771 4m vram and see if it's any better
than the diamond version of the s3-968.

(BTW, I haven't tried the 312e/elf version on my new redhat 3.0.3 system, yet.
I'd assume its probably the same as the aout, in terms of dashed-line bugs.)

To the s3-968 developer(s): thanks for the incremental improvement -- you're
getting closer ;-)

cheers,

Microsoft is not the answer; Microsoft is the question. Linux is the answer.

I tried 3.1.2E and experience the dash line problem on my Diamond
Stealth Trio 764. 3.1.2D had them, too. I've gone back to 3.1.2
distribution version, which is OK.

The above refers to the ELF version on RedHat 3.0.3.
