(in combination witht he card; PCI timing problems, ...). but maybe
where is this COM4 port located ??Quote:> 02e8-02ef : serial(set)
did you have it on your 486 board too (using the *same* card) ?
some COM4 ports have address conflicts with the S3 chips due to
broken address decoders. try to disable/remove this port.
also get XFree86 3.1.2B which has some minor PCI fixes...
and try your graphics card in every single PCI slot...
