I'm planning on starting as soon as I get the driver docs from S3. As far as I
know, noone else has bothered to write the drivers for the S3 chip. If you
(or anyone else, as far as that goes) are willing to help me write the drivers
PLEASE let me know. I want to have X11 up and running ASAFP. This will probably
be a large project, so any help I can get will be greatly appreciated.



1. Help with new S3 video card: S3: Unknown S3 chipset chip_id = 0x31e1 rev. 61


For a friend without internet i do have a question.
He has a new bought S3 PCI 2MB (i thought a Trio64) video card and want to
run X now :)

When trying to start X he gets the message:

(--) S3: Mode "400x300" needs hsync freq of 48.08 kHz. Deleted.
(--) S3: Mode "480x300" needs hsync freq of 39.56 kHz. Deleted.
(--) S3: Mode "480x300" needs hsync freq of 48.00 kHz. Deleted.
(**) FontPath set to
S3: Unknown S3 chipset:
chip_id = 0x31e1 rev. 61

 *** None of the configured devices were detected.***

Does anyone know what could be the problem here?
