S3-864 (i.p. Spea V7 Mirage) Support ??

Post by Stefan Gosse » Fri, 14 Oct 1994 21:02:18



Hi, there !

I'm having trouble to get X11 running on my machine which includes a Spea V7
Mirage S3 graphics accelerator card. The S3-Server throws out a "unrecognized
S3 chipset: " (or somethign like that) and a chipset id. Before i start digging
in the sourcecodes to adapt the server: Is there already an X-Server which
includes S3-864 Support ? Or what else can i do to get X running ?

ciao, stego

(please answer here, as i have no permission to receive EMAIL)

My Mirage has an S3 805 and works fine in X11. I used XconfigXF86 to get the
usual modes at >70Hz.

Hope this helps, Danny.

Hi,

if you are still using an Xfree < 3.1 this Card won't work at all because
the S3 864 chipset isn't supported. Get Xfree3.1 and make an XF86config-file
using the tool 'xf86config'. That worked fine with my S3-864.

bye

1. Spea V7 Mirage P-64 (S3-864) and HS MS 1564LE Monitor

I need help to run X on my hardware under linux,

Some technical details for my hardware:

graphic card:

        Spea V7 Mirage P-64
        Processor: S3 Vision864   (64 bit processor)

        Clock: I assume it's programmable but nowhere in the manual
                of my graphic card I can find some technical facts for
                the clock

monitor:

        Highscreen MS 1564 LE  15''
        Bandwith: 75MHz
        Horizontal Sync: 30-64 KHz
        Vertical Sync:   55-90 Hz

I already fetched and installed

        XF86_S3_864.tar.gz.good.linux

from  ftp.cdrom.com. Before I only got "unknown chipset (chipd=0XC0)",
with the new S3 server X runs at least in a 640x480 resolution mode.
But I don't get X run in higher resolutions.

I set

Clocks  "icd2061a"

I'm not sure whether this is correct for my card, isn't it?

Furthermore does anybody know the magic numbers (ModeDB) I need
for /etc/Xconfig?

For any help I would be very grateful,

        Karl Prott

P.S.: If I get running it I will post the results.
