The Trident 9660 will only work properly (at least my experience) with
the VGA16 server (XF86_VGA16).  I have it working in 1024x768 16 colors
currently with the X3.1.2B Elf code.  No special settings for the VGA16
server to speak of.

Let me know if you need any help.

Get the latest X312D_SVGA server, and you'll have 256 colors with your 9660 card.
It works fine, just got it going yesterday.  You'll have to get some other stuff
though, too; read the RELEASE notes that are in the same ftp directory as the
server.

1. Need Help: Trident 9660 w/X

I just bought a new Trident 2 MB PCI card, the 9660.  I have had
many trident cards in the past, and they all configured correctly
with configxf86 util, but this cards seems to have brought up some
problems, I am using Linux 1.2.13, but am unsure of the version
of XFree that I am using, if anyone could help me in this matter,
please respond privately.

Thank you in advance
