I just got a video board, #9 9FX Vision 330
w/ S3 Trio 32/64 chip.
I tried to use the X11S3 server (X311S3u1.tgz I think),
have the XF86config with:
Chipset "mmio_829" (forgot if it's actually something else and not 829)
Everything else is configured by xf86config where the only information
I entered are the frequency for my monitor and the identifiers.
When I started X, it ran well and gave me all the windows just like
i had set up before with my et4000w32 card. But when I tried to
go back to one of the virtual console using ctrl-alt-F#, the
screen got totally messed up, the monitor is not in sync at all.
I will get that even if I kill the X with ctrl-alt-backspace.
Later i discovered that if I get out from X when I cycle to 800x600 mode,
i will get a stable text screen but now the whole screen is shrinked
and the texts are much smaller than it should. The two other resolution
i set up are 1024x768 and 600x480 and if I tried to get to a
virtual console or get out from X at that point, my monitor will get out
of sync as I discribed.
Have any one use this card? Can I get a working xf86config or
any advice on setting it up correctly?
My monitor is a NEC 3fgx btw.
