Is the S3-964 Chip supported?

Is the S3-964 Chip supported?

Post by Hermann Himmelbau » Fri, 30 Jun 1995 04:00:00



Hi!
I am using a Miro 20SV Graphics card. Whenever I fire up my
X server, it tells me that the driver for the 928 chipset is used.
Well, the 928 chip is only 32 bit. Does this mean that my card
is only running in a "32-bit mode"?

                Any help is appreciated
                        Thanx in advance
                                Hermann

P.S.: Can you, if possible reply by mail?

no. it means that the server uses the 928-style memory mapped I/O addresses
instead of using in/out instructions.

it's not possible at all to use a S3 864/964 etc. in "32-bit mode" only.

sorry, please read news if you're looking for answers.
