Hi!

I have same card which you have but with 2Mb VRAM. In fact I have
Diamond Stealth 64 (968/Video) PCI 2Mb VRAM. I think that you have
something wrong in your XF86config (unfortunately you didnt give
your XF86config with you news-post). I have MG AMD486DX4-120 PCI
and my X-server is version 3.1.2 (other parts are from 3.1.1).

Here is my XF86config. It might differ than yours, but you should
edit your own guite easy. Here it is

Diamond Stealth 64 PCI S3-968 VRAM and XFree86

A newer revision of this card no longer uses the Ti3026 ramdac but a
IBM RGB52x ramdac. try specifying

        RAMDAC "ibm_rgb524"

for XFree86 3.1.2 (3.1.2A should detect this RAMDAC automaticly if I'm right).

Quote:> (--) S3: Using hardware cursor from Ti3026 RAMDAC
> (**) S3: Using TI 3026 programmable clock (MCLK 107.496 MHz)

the probed MCLK value is *much* tooo high for a real Ti3026 chip.
one more evidence that there is no Ti3026 on your card...
