Description Piotr Wojciechowski 2006-03-23 03:10:17 EST
Description of problem:

It seems new savage driver support no acceleration :(

I have laptop Compaq Presario 700 with graphic card:
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: S3 Inc. VT8636A [ProSavage KN133] AGP4X VGA
Controller (TwisterK) (rev 01)

In xorg its working under savage driver. Problem is that all acceleration is
disabled. Graphics works very slow, can't watch even movie via mplayer because
of slow rendering, while opening picture full screen or starting gdm login
screen you can see how its slowly rendering. It all slowing down system very
much and make it unusable for all multimedia stuff.

There is also problem while resetting X server under this driver, it sometimes
not coming back to text mode

Configuration section

Section "Device"
        Identifier  "Videocard0"
        Driver      "savage"
        BoardName   "S3 ProSavage KN133"

How reproducible:

Use savage driver on latest xorg

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC5
2. Install xorg with savage driver
3. Try to use
Actual results:

System working slowly and without acceleration, can't use any multimedia

Expected results:

Acceleration like in xorg from FC4
