Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 26791
Cyrix MediaGX must use X3 not X4 (X4 hangs it)
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:31:21 EDT
Text mode upgrade of a Cyrix MediaGX from previous
beta cycle. Did 'startx -- -bpp 16' as ever and the
screen put a pretty pattern of blue swirls up and
the machine hung solid to the extent I had to hit
the power switch.
Rebooted, ran Xconfigurator --preferxf3, it detected
the mediagx beautifully and X ran happily.
I expect this means that if it's a Cyrix, then it
must use X3.
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Florence Release-Candidate #1
Re-assigning to pbrown at his request.
Fixed in 4.9.2. MediaGX now uses the 3.3.6 server by default.
