Description Brian Ryner 2000-07-28 09:36:01 UTC
I had filed this bug before (it was marked MUST-FIX for Winston Gold
Release), but bugzilla corruption seems to have eaten it... so here goes
again.

Xconfigurator reports that no XFree86 4 driver is available for a Riva128
card.  It should be using the nv driver.  Here's a patch to
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/Cards that seems to fix it:

Comment 1 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-07-28 19:51:28 UTC
Is it good enough to be the primary driver, or is it just available?

Comment 2 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-07-28 21:05:32 UTC
Added the driver in CVS, but it is not used as default.

Comment 3 Brian Ryner 2000-07-28 22:45:18 UTC
Why not the primary driver?  Are there known problems?


Comment 4 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-07-31 14:57:32 UTC
No, but we can't test and XFree 4 has issues with quite a few cards. Testing and
feedback appreciated
