Patch for XFree86 3.2 to fix the Hercules mono server.

This patch should fix the Hercules mono server in XFree86 3.2. I
can provide the binary for XF86_Mono if it is necessary.

Thanks.

Because I don't have the source of Xfree 3.2 I can't compile the server
so I would like you to make the XF86_Mono server like it was for 3.1.1.
I am running that one, because the 3.1.2 one was buggy (messed fonts...)
I have a hercules card and monitor which works great. Please include
the full working mono server in the Xfree 3.2 distribution.

thank you in advance

1. XF86 Mono + Hercules Mono card ?

Hi All,

I have a 486DX/2-66 with a Hercules mono card running
Linux (kernel 2.0.30).  According to the packaging
(S.u.s.e. 5.0) it appears to support the card but
when I try to 'startx' it chucks out all the monitor
definitions and then aborts because it can't find
one that fits !.  XF86config has configured X to use
XF86mono.  XF86setup doesn't work because it wants
to use the 16 colour VGA X server.

Can anyone confirm or deny that this works and if it
does what the appropriate entries are.

The reason I'm asking is that some packages won't
install without X and I thought if it is supported
then you might as well see if it works.

Before anyone says that monitors are 10 a penny, they
are not here in Germany (they want $200 for a 14"
monitor!).  I have a Miro 20SD 2MB video card (S3 868)
but no monitor and am trying to use what hardware I have.
