Does XFree86 support S3Trio VGA Card ?

Post by Niko D. Barl » Thu, 06 Jul 1995 04:00:00



Does anyone can help me how to setup my XFree86?
I'm using Gateway 2000 P120 system with S3 Trio 2MB VRAM (86C764 Chipset).
There is not any documentation describing this card (and chipset) so that
I cannot configure XF86Config properly. I also tried to run the 'probeonly'
to determine my system's clock etc, but it seems that it cannot recognize
my card. What should I do ?

get XFree86 3.1.1 (which is the first version with support for Trio64)
and run xf86config to build a config file. there will be some
generic Trio64 card to select...

Yes you can run XFree86 X-windows with an S3Trio SVGA Card.
Try running Superprobe instead, and see if that helps.
I am using XFree86 with resolution 1024x768 in 65535 colors. Works fine.
My card is is a S3Trio64 with 2Mb of DRAM

1. support for VGA card under XFree86

        Does anyone have experienced to run XFree86
        using a VGA card with the UM85C404 chipset?

        I can't make it right. I've trying to adapt
        a mode for another chipset since I don't
        have this particular one. I know the card
        supports 256 colors at 1024x768, 70Hz.

        Any help is most welcome
