I have problems with my new SPEA V7 Mirage VLB graphics card with s3
86c805 chipset !!!!!! help !!!!!!!!

I have substituted my old and slow but proper working Tseng et4000 (it
was a dear). Behind the window display a young, cheap and fast
accelerated card looks tempting ----> SPEA V7 Mirage VLB with s3
86c805 chipset. But at home I feel disillusion.

I have a 486dx2-66 Motherboard (VLB) with 12MB memory (Linux 1.0.9,
XFree86-2.1). When I'm probing the card with "X -probeonly"  
(Clocks uncommended in Xconfig) I got the first two clocks, the
next 14 clocks were recognized incorrect. Instead I obtained funny numbers
like " 0.0 0.0 7.0 9.0 9.0 .....".

Then I have copied the clocks specified for this card from the
AccelerateCard file into my Xconfig file. My ModeDB stays unchanged,
because the clocks I have used for my et4000 card (with the same
monitor Vobis ms-1457) are also supported by the Spea Mirage. After
startig X (startx) only the Mode "680x480" (with clock 40.0) yields a
stable X picture, all other Modes doesn't work proper (fast running
stripes).

Please help me !!!!!

Thanx a lot

wenn die clocks so nicht "geprobed" werden, dann sind sie auch nicht da.

wenn du nur 25 und 28Mhz (und nullen bekommst), ist ein programmierbarer
clockchip auf der karte, musst du mal nach "ICD..." oder "ICS..." auf der
karte suchen. Wenns ein ICD2061 ist, kannst du

        Clocks "icd2061a"

verwenden. der ICS2595 wird erst n Xree86 3.1 unterstuetzt. fuer andere
clock chips bitte nochmal fragen.

was mich auch interesiert und wichtig sein koennte: welcher RAMDAC ist
auf der karte? wie sieht der SuperProbe und XF86_S3 output aus?

fuer karten mit 805 solltest du auf jeden fall mindestens XFree86 2.1.1
verwenden, in 2.1 gibts da z.t. noch probleme.
