I installed linux (slakware, kernel 2.0.0) on my PC. I tried to install
X window and I failed.
I have S3-Virge DX 4MB. its name is not on the list (during the
I went on the xfree86 site and I downloaded the 3.3.2 (latest version of
Xfree86) and I began the installation
in followin the instruction on the xfree86 site:
cd /usr/X11R6
..../extract    ..../.x332[8-z]*.tgz.
and I get the following output:
== Extracting /outils/xfree/x332bin.tgz ==
== Extracting /outils/xfree/x332cfg.tgz ==
== Extracting /outils/xfree/x332doc.tgz ==

/outils/xfree/extract: Only read 5316 bytes from archive
/outils/xfree/extract: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

do you have any idea of the problem?



1. S3 ViRGE/DX and S3 ViRGE/GX: is one better than the other?

On a friend's recommendation, I ordered an S3 ViRGE/DX video card for
the PC I am putting together. I received an S3 ViRGE/GX card instead.

Is one better than the other in general? Is one more compatible with
XFree86? Or are the two roughly the same, so that I should just keep
the GX card?

Thanks for your input,

Mike Decerbo
