Video driver for Trident 9680 card and MetroX

Video driver for Trident 9680 card and MetroX

Post by Nate Clar » Thu, 17 Jul 1997 04:00:00

I followed what looked like the recommended path for RedHat Linux
and picked the MetroX implementation of X.  Bad idea, maybe....

I don't see a MetroX driver for the Trident 9680 video card in configX.  
Two questions:
  (1) does anybody know where I can find a MetroX driver?
  (2) should I be using  XFree86 instead?

By the way, this is an Intel type machine.

Please reply via email.  Thanks in advance.

1. Trident 9680 Video Card vs. Cirrus Login 5430 Video Card


    I'm in a situation here...  Got my choice of a Trident 9680 or a Cirrus
5430 video card.  Both are PCI, both have 2 megs.  

    They're both supported under Win/NT 4.0..  Here's the rub - Which is the
better card under X-free86?  Are there problems with either of them?  I'd be
after 800x600x256, will these cards handle this mode under X?
