s3 trio3d getting "unknown s3 chipset" installing redhat 5.2

Post by Nfamou » Sun, 14 Mar 1999 04:00:00



I cannot get Xfree86 to install properly with my IBM p70 monitor and s3
trio3d card. It keeps saying s3 chipset not recognized. Anyone seen this
before. Redhat support is a joke and not a very good one. I paid for this
crap.

as can be seen from http://www.xfree86.org/cardlist.txt, the s3 trio3d card
is supported, and the software manufacturer states to use the XF86_VGA16
server.

1. Help with new S3 video card: S3: Unknown S3 chipset chip_id = 0x31e1 rev. 61

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 "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,
