Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 21636
Gnome and Video Card S3 Savage 4 not compatible.
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
I installed Linux 7 over 6.2 and now Gnome doesn't work. Sometimes the dialog boxes show sometimes they don't. If you open several
windows, they overlay ontop of each other, makes it impossible to read. I can't use the system at all, can't even get to text mode cause I can't
see anything. The video card is an S3 Inc. Savage 4, 32MB.
This is an X problem, not a gnome problem.
Please refer to the following link for a workaround for these cards:

OK, can you tell me how to do this:...
2. Downgrade the XFree86-SVGA-3.3.6-33 package that comes in Red Hat 7 to XFree86-SVGA-3.3.6-20, the Red Hat Linux 6.2 SVGA server. This has
the problem in several cases.
