I've had very bad luck with all types of cirrus chipsets on several
systems with the SVGA-256 XFree86 shipped with Caldera 1.1- But
trident, ATI, and most other chipsets seem to work great.
The usual problem is error messages during startup, such as
unable to find server, invalid chipset, and clock value not
supported with this chipset. The startup code properly recognizes the
chipset, vram size etc, but says there is no driver present (sounds
like i'm missing something, does'nt it...).
I have several cirrus-based video cards- Xfree86 has never been
able use any of them. Most importantly, I'm trying to get a laptop
running under linux, which has a cirrus 754x chipset, and X acts
the same, ugly way with this chipset....
Am I the only person to see this, or is there a bugfix out there ???
thanks for any ideas :)
