type:

'ls -la /etc/X11/X'

in a terminal window to see what driver X is currently linked to

1. Linux (SLS) and a WD90C11 vid driver

Howdy out there...

I've been quite impressed with Linux in general, but have been
pestered by fringe problems, such as the following:

I've got a Dell 486P/50 which has a Paradise WD90C11 video board on
the mother board.  According to the README.WstDig file, the WD90C11 is
a supported driver, but according to the X program (specifically the
driver.c module) the only supported WD boards are

static char *chipsets[] = {"pvga1","wd90c00","wd90c10","wd90c30","wd90c31"};

What gives?  Do I have an old version of the VGA256 driver?  If so,
where is the latest and greatest?  If not, what's wrong with this
picture?
