Hi,

Following file is my XF86Config file for Viper VLB P9000 with Samsung
Syncmaster 9G (20inch) monitor.
I think you should change some of the file. The mode is fixed on 1280x1024.
This card does not support multi-resolution, so you have to choose your
own resolution. If you do not have 2M video ram, edit the Section "Device".
You should uncomment "Clocks 85" and comment out "Clock 135"
to have 1024x768 mode. Also you must change "VideoRam" in Device Section,
"Modes" and "Virtual" in Screen Section.
Mouse and "MemBase" may be different from my computer.
As you know your X driver should be linked to XF86_P9000 in /usr/X11/bin
directory.
If this file does not work, you would better use the xf86config file.
I think you can find it some ftp site for XFree3.1. However, it did not
work correctly in my machine. So I had to edit the XF86Config file which was
generated by xf86config.
e.g. put
    Chipset     "vipervlb"
    MemBase      0x80000000
in the device section,

1. Weitek P9000 - Diamond Viper VLB

Has anyone heard anything about the compatibility  of the Diamond Viper
graphics card with XFree package that Linux uses?  It seems that many
computer companies are now shipping this card with their machines.  So
I would appreciate any information in regard to this card.
