Thank you in advance.

I have problem with my Diamond Multimedia
Stealth64 Video 3200 video card with fixed 2MB VRAM.

Its manual says:
It uses 64-bit graphics accelerator chip.
It is *backwards* compatible with most programs that
ran with a S3 928 based VGA card.

So I use /usr/X11/bin/XF86_S3 as my X server.
It turns out the pointer will point half character
right of the actual position no matter what VideoMode
I use.

I tried XF86_Mono and XF86_VGA16 servers, they work fine.
But they can not take advantage of my 2M VRAM.
The XF86_SVGA server can only see 64k RAM, so it doesn't work.

So what X server should I use?
