Configuring XFree86 for S3 Trio 64V2

Configuring XFree86 for S3 Trio 64V2

Post by David Kwa » Thu, 18 Dec 1997 04:00:00

Hi there,

        I am currently trying to config my HP vectra machine with S3 Trio64V2
to work with Linux, however, the accelerated X server for S3 support
only Trio64 generic.  I try to use the SVGA server but I get a very
messy screen that I have to reboot to exit the X window. The XF16 works
but the resoulution is unacceptable.  Does any of you know how I can get
the SVGA server to work, or if better, get an update X server for S3?

Thanks a lot.
