Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 11611
Voodoo Banshee (ASUS V3200-AGP) problem with XF86_SVGA 3.3.6
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:55 EDT
Moving windows get corrupted (covered with 'snow'). Resizing the window
fixes the picture till next moving. Switching back to text console or
shutting down X leaves text mode display corupted (random 'snow'). There
is no this problem with XF86_SVGA 3.3.5.
Voodoo support has been dramatically improved in XFree86 4.0.1, which is the
default for the Voodoo series of cards in our forthcoming release of Red Hat
I tried the latest beta from ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/beta/pinstripe and it
had even worse problems with X. Basically I could not even install it using
graphics mode and after installation in text mode X were freezing all the time.
This is not fixed in 7.0
The version of XWindow that comes with RedHat 7.0 has the same problem.
I use the same card voodoo Banshee;works fine for me.Did in 6.0,6.2and 7.0
I have AGP voodoo 16 meg card and it hasn't worked since 6.2 and still doesn't work for 7.1 fisher either. I went to the following website to get 4.x dirvers
that work: http://www.cs.sunysb.edu/~giri/xfree86-banshee.html
the 3.3.6 drivers unde rhat 6.2 still dont' work for me :(
Fixed summary to "Voodoo" not "vodoo".
Unfortunately, the driver referenced in the above URL is binary only.
We do not ship binary only drivers. If you can coax the source code
out of the author, or a proper patch that works with 4.0.2, I'll
be glad to add a fix ASAP. I'm still looking for a fix...
I just found the guys email addr and emailed him to request source.
Fixed in rawhide. XFree86-4.0.2-11 and higher.
