Have a Diamond SpeedStar a90 which is based on the  Savage4 pro+ chip (with 16mb)
I can not get better then 8bit 800x600 resolution from the svga driver in XFree86
When at a higher resolution the screen is undeadable ( but does not flicker ) you see what sort of looks like the desktop with white vertical 
bars.
This did not happen in v6.2 or v7.0 

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Set XFree86 to any Savage4 setting
2.Run startx
3.
	

Actual Results:  Always get crupt screen, execpt at 8bit, 800x600 or less

Expected Results:  Works at least as good as 7.0
Would like to have a working excelorated Savage4 driver

Please contact me if you need more information or wish that I try somthing

Please try the 4.0.3-9 release from my dir at:

ftp://people.redhat.com/mharris

Does this fix the problem?
Comment 2 Charles Liebenberg 2001-06-28 09:55:23 EDT
Exact same problem except I have only 1600x1400 @ 8 bit working

Using Savage4 (16mb)

Would you "Create a new attachement" using the link bellow for the following 
two files:
/etc/X11/XF86Config-4 and /var/log/XFree86.*.log, please

Comment 7 Mike A. Harris 2001-08-13 19:45:59 EDT
I've got some feedback that this is fixed in the Rawhide version
of XFree86 4.1.0-0.9.11.  Could you confirm this please?
