Hello,

    I have a #9GXEPro (chipset S3 Vision 964) and I can't get any
program that uses svgalib to work. I'm stuck. It sucks. I'm tired. Help
me.

Why use svgalib?  svgalib is a waste of your card.  Run X11.

BTW, the svgalib demo programs worked for me.  (the 3D one was cute)
There is also a diagnostic svgalib program that inspects youor hardware
and says what you have.  Only the lower-resolution (VGA not SVGA) modes
work on 9GXEPro.  Reason:  SVGA is not a standard, VGA is; VESA is.

1. MAG 17F & S3-964??

        Hey!

I was wondering if anyone could e-mail me their XF86Config file for the
above types.  I have a MAG DX 17F and I am using a Diamond S3-964 chip.
(I know a couple of you sent me your MAG info, but I had an slight
"accident" and have since lost them.  ;-)  So if you could be so kind...)
I don't have the right numbers, and I really need X up and running.

Any help would be appreciated!
