Description Alan Cox 2004-05-23 06:55:21 EDT
Description of problem:

xorg-X11 on an S3 Savage 4 card. Overall it seems to work (XFree 4.3
had real problems). However switching to a text console causes this

X[2402]: segfault at 00000000000a0000 rip 0000000000bdd213 rsp
0000007fbfffef88 error 6

(which looks like its trying to access the *bus* address of ISA spaces)

Alan, does this problem still occur in FC3 or later?  If you could
test with 6.8.2, that would be useful info.  If the problem does
still exist, it should be filed in X.Org bugzilla though, as I
don't think we have Savage 4 hardware available for the X
Devel team.
