TGUI 9440/9660/9680 and XFree/SVGATextMode support

Post by Massimiliano GHILAR » Wed, 11 Dec 1996 04:00:00



I wrote a patch to support Trident TGUI 9440/9660/9680 with
SVGATextMode. I have also sent it to the author of SVGATextMode, of course.
If you are interested, you can get it from

ftp://ftp.Linuz.sns.it/pub/Linux/ext-pack/tgui/SVGATextMode-diff

please note that is is BETA code, and that you will need to install
it with 'patch -p0' on top of SVGATextMode-1.4 sources.

Let me know if it works and/or if you have problems!

I also wrote a small patch for XF86_SVGA server of XFree 3.2
that fixes the TGUI clockchip programming code (it has a _HORRIBLE_ bug)
you can get it from the same place:

ftp://ftp.Linuz.sns.it/pub/Linux/ext-pack/tgui/xserver-diff

it is a patch against the X32lkit.tgz (LinkKit) package,
and it is of course BETA (or perhaps ALPHA ?) too.

Let me know if it works and/or if you have problems, too.

Well, that's wrong. The correct addresses are:

ftp://Linuz.sns.it/pub/Linux/ext-pack/tgui/SVGATextMode-diff

ftp://Linuz.sns.it/pub/Linux/ext-pack/tgui/xserver-diff

Sorry for the typo.

 
 
 

1. TGUI 9660/9680 X installation -- need help!!!

Hello experienced folks,

I have the Video-57P Linear Accelerator for PCI V1.31.19 2MB
with TGUI 9660/9680 chipset.

Does anybody know what driver will work with this card, if any:(
because I found in the Trident.config file a paragraph that says that
this card (TGUI 9660/9680) is not currently supported by this release
of X86 (I have the last one, I guess 3.something:))

So, any help would be very appreciated, thanks.

Sergey Gerasimov.
