Hello,

For a friend without internet i do have a question.
He has a new bought S3 PCI 2MB (i thought a Trio64) video card and want to
run X now :)

When trying to start X he gets the message:

<snip>
(--) S3: Mode "400x300" needs hsync freq of 48.08 kHz. Deleted.
(--) S3: Mode "480x300" needs hsync freq of 39.56 kHz. Deleted.
(--) S3: Mode "480x300" needs hsync freq of 48.00 kHz. Deleted.
(**) FontPath set to

S3: Unknown S3 chipset:
chip_id = 0x31e1 rev. 61

 *** None of the configured devices were detected.***

Does anyone know what could be the problem here?

Thanks,

Arjan Filius

Argh!  All right, so how am I supposed to work with Linux when
everything's already been done?!  Can't these people leave some
broken MSDOS like parts so there's problems left to solve!?....

I think the prob is that your friend is running 3.1.X

You'll have to down load the 3.2 server from <ftp://ftp.xfree86.org>
You need the S3V server this is for the Virge chipset.

You can get either the bins or the src and follow the install
instructions and all should be well. ;)
