Does anybody know where can I find support for the Trident 9440 PCI
SuperVGA board to X Windows?

 I use Slackware kernel 1.2.13.

 Thanks in advance.

Look for X312D and E.  I believe those will work for you.

Go to ftp.xfree86.org and grab a copy of the 3.1.2D/E versions of XFree,
and the server you want is the SVGA server.  This will support the 9440.

Doesn't Linux support Trident boards? I am going to buy Trident 9440 PCI
board so I would like some information.

I use a SPEA Vega PRO VLB with a Trident 9440. The SVGA-Driver works if you
use the Beta release 3.1.2E.

It depends on what you mean when you ask if Linux supports Trident boards.  
The text-based Linux software has no problem with any Trident, however,
the problems begin when you try to run X-Windows.  The X-Windows servers
on the Slackware distribution do *not* support the Trident 9440.  There
does *however* exist a beta of the *next* version of XFree86's implementation
that does.  To get it, you must go to ftp.xfree86.org and fetch the 3.1.2D
and 3.1.2E beta code (the E beta is not complete in and of itself, but
builds on the code in the D beta.)

Any idea whether this (XFree86 3.1.2D/E) also handles the Trident 9680?
Just bought one today - real nice with Win95, but XF86 v ?.?.? doesn't
handle it at all well.  

Thanks,
Charlie Mulks

Yes it does.  It has been implemented for most of the 94x0 and 96x0
series cards.  (I say most because if I say all, someone will point out
some obscure card only used on 4 machines doesn't work)  Remember
though, its not accelerated, so don't expect the same performance as
with other drivers.
