Mercury 64 supported by XFree 3.1.1 ?

Post by Robert Fra » Sun, 12 Feb 1995 02:18:09



Hello,

Now that XFree 3.1.1. is out I wonder if the SPEA Mercury 64 is finally
supported ? Unfortunately there is no readme.file distributed that tells about
the changes since 3.1. ? Anyone knows ?

Thanks, Rob

a) yes, l ast time I looked there was a file named "README" (strange
   name) that contained information about the changes made since 3.1
b) yes, the Spea Mercury P64 finally works with XFree86-3.1.1

Unfortunately you don't want to read your READMEs, eh?
This is the start of the main README file for 3.1.1 which is available
all over the world, even in munich:-)

  README for XFree86[TM] 3.1.1
  The XFree86 Project, Inc

  15 January 1995

  XFree86 is a port of X11R6 that supports several versions of Intel-
  based Unix and Unix-like operating systems.  This release consists of
  many new features and performance improvements as well as many bug
  fixes.  The release is available as source patches against the X Con-
  sortium X11R6 code, as well as binary distributions for many architec-
  tures.

  1.  What's new in XFree86 3.1.1

  The following items have been added since XFree86 3.1 was released in
  October 1994:

     1. XFree86 3.1.1 includes the X Consortium's recently released
        public patches (up to fix-11).  The XFree86 Project, Inc has
        worked with the X Consortium to have much of XFree86 3.1.1
        included in the X Consortium's fix-11.

     2. A new accelerated server for Mach64 boards.

     3. Support for the S3 Trio32 and Trio64 chipsets.

     4. Support in the S3 server for the Chrontel 8391 clock chip.

     5. Support for SPEA Mercury P64 and MIRO Crystal 40SV.

     6. Bug fixes and some performance improvements for most of the
        accelerated servers.

     7. Support for `double scan' video modes (most servers).

     8. New chipset support for the SVGA server.  This includes the
        Avance Logic 2228/2301, Chips & Technology 655xx, Cirrus Logic
        6440, and Oak OTI-087.  Accelerated support is included for the
        OTI-087.

     9. Support for FreeBSD 2.0.

     10.
        Preliminary support for OS/2 (client-only at this stage; this is
        still under development).

     11.
        Linear aperture access when running on BSD/386.

     12.
        16bpp and 32bpp support for more S3 boards (refer to README.S3
        (S3.html) for details).

     13.
        Support for ISC's SVR3 (only tested for 3.x and 4.x).

     14.
        The `xf86config' utility for generating XF86Config files has
        been improved and now uses a database of video cards.

     15.
        The X server LinkKit has been updated to include support for
        LBX.

     16.
        The slow X server startup time on machines without hardware
        floating point has been improved.

  Plus a number of other small items.  Refer to the CHANGELOG file in
  the source distribution for full details.
