I have been trying, in vain, to get XFree86 up and running on a
system with the following configuration:
Machine: Oldish HP Vectra XU 5/90
Monitor: HP Ultra VGA 1280, Model 2807A
S3 864 graphics accelerator
First video: Super-VGA
Chipset: S3 Vision864 (PCI Probed)
Memory: 2048 Kbytes
RAMDAC: STG1702 15/16/24-bit DAC w/cursor,pixel-mux
(with 6-bit wide lookup tables (or in 6-bit mode))
(programmable for 6/8-bit wide lookup tables)
I cannot for the life of me get it to start in anything other
than VGA. It pops out the messages:
(--) SVGA: There is no defined dot-clock matching mode "1024x768"
I've tried several different configurations as I run through
XF86Setup, but none seem to make any difference.
Yes, I've tried the S3 server as well.
Is there anyone who can give me a good clue as to what I
might be doing wrong?
Anyone have a config file that they think might put an end to
