S3 Trio64: dark, very dark

Post by D. C. & M. V. Session » Tue, 04 May 1999 04:00:00

Tried to set up the kids' machine today.  The fool thing has an
S3 86C785 Trio64V2GX on the MB, which we populated up to 4MB.
The servers weren't too hard to get going, but the display
is *really* dark -- barely visible cranked to the max.

Anyone figure out the trick to getting this combo to work?
(And yes, of COURSE the Trio is junk.  So?)

1. S3 video card exits X of linux in the dark ?

Hello everybody,

Recently I installed a S3 805 vesa local bus graphic card and X seems to work
alright. There is just a strange thing that happens when I exit X.
The screen only shows a blinking cursor and no text whatsoever.
If I type a command it gets executed but I don't see what I am typing ?
The Linux version used is Yggdrasil, summer 1994.

Any comments on how to get me out of the dark are very welcome,
