Hi all

I'm having problems with my Stealth VRAM ISA-bus card:
S3 86C924
1K memory
RAMDAC SS2410

Can't find any XF86Config values for this card in the docs.
X and my PC crashes, can't even accept Ctrl-Alt-Del

Any clues out there ?

Hello,

I am running the Stealth 1 MB Vram with a Viewsonic 7 Monitor. Below is the messy but working XF86Config file. Good luck.

1. newbie needs help: diamond stealth vram(ISA)

        hi, I recently posted an article here, and it seems to
        me that nobody cares to respond. So, here I go again.
        I have a 3y/o stealth VRAM 1MB(ISA) and I can't figure
        out what the dot-clock frequencies are. I went through
        all the files in /XFree86/doc and I couldn't find an
        entry for my stealth-vram except in the file 'Cards'.
        It has an entry for my stealth vram and saying see
        S3-911/924 (generic). Which I did and tried, but without
        any sucess in obtaining any result. Currently the card
        is capable of displaying at 640x480(w256colors). What
        I need is for it to display at higher resolution
        (800x600x256c,or 1024x768x256c). Any informations would
        greatly appreciate it.   YES! I'm desparate !!!!!
                                        jing tan

        PS oh yeah, the stealth vram is attached to my NEC 4FG
        monitor.
