Is there anyone out there who has managed to get XFree86 up and running
with an Avance Logic ALG 2301 (PCI) accellerator?  I've been trying for
days and am getting nowhere...

There's an ALG-2101 driver in XFree86 3.1 that might work.

The ALG-2101 SVGA driver included in XFree86 3.1 is broken (at least on
Linux). It doesn't ask I/O permissions for ports 0x3d6/7.
It will be fixed in 3.1.1.

From what I've heard, and from experience with the very same chipset, the
only way you can run X with an Avance Logic (2301) card is to use the VGA16
driver (640x480 = yuck).  There's currently support for another family of
Avance Logic chipsets (22??), but it's not compatible w/the ALG 2301.

For now, if you want anything other than 640x480, you're s.o.l.

1. XFree86 in 1024x768 mode with avance logic 2302 grafic card

Hello,

I'm trying to setup XFree86 from the slackware-3.0 distribution
with an avance logic 2302 PCI 1MB grafic card.
The problem is, that I only succeed doing so in the 800x600 mode.
I installed the SVGA server.

How is it possible to switch to the 1024x768 mode with this
grafic card?
