Unknown S3 chipset

Post by Adam Lew » Sat, 16 Sep 1995 04:00:00

        Using the S3 server, XFree86 3.1.2 and a Stealth 64 Video VRAM,
I get the following error when attempting to start X...

        S3: Unknown S3 chipset: chip_id = 0xfffff0e1 rev.31

Does anyone know how to get rid of this?

For a friend without internet i do have a question.
He has a new bought S3 PCI 2MB (i thought a Trio64) video card and want to
run X now :)

When trying to start X he gets the message:

(--) S3: Mode "400x300" needs hsync freq of 48.08 kHz. Deleted.
(--) S3: Mode "480x300" needs hsync freq of 39.56 kHz. Deleted.
(--) S3: Mode "480x300" needs hsync freq of 48.00 kHz. Deleted.
(**) FontPath set to
S3: Unknown S3 chipset:
chip_id = 0x31e1 rev. 61

 *** None of the configured devices were detected.***

Does anyone know what could be the problem here?

everything's already been done?!  Can't these people leave some
broken MSDOS like parts so there's problems left to solve!?....
