Description hjl 2001-04-10 23:57:54 EDT
There are so many noises on S3 Savage in XFree86-4.0.3-5.  when
I move cursor.  Copy /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/savage_drv.o
from XFree86-4.0.3-1 fixes the problem.

BTW, it is on a Toshiba Portege 3480CT.

Hi HJ.  What chipset is it exactly?  A driver change fixed a bunch
of bugs for many, but introduced some for others.  ;o(

I'm trying to find out what all savage chips are affected.  There is a
new driver - 1.1.16 out I'm going to grab and put in the next build.

Could you look at bug #34376 and see if it is the same bug?
Comment 3 hjl 2001-04-11 13:40:40 EDT
Here is my chip info:

00:04.0 VGA compatible controller: S3 Inc. 86C270-294 Savage/MX-/IX (rev 11)
(prog-if 00 [VGA])
        Subsystem: Toshiba America Info Systems: Unknown device 0001
        Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 248, IRQ 11
        Memory at f0000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable)
        Expansion ROM at 000c0000 [disabled]
        Capabilities: [dc] Power Management version 1

bug #34376 does sound familiar to my bug.
