Description Warren Togami 2001-08-24 06:47:43 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT 5.0)

Description of problem:
This newer Trident chipset is not autodetected by Xconfigurator.  You can 
select Trident drivers from Xconfigurator, but no menu selections are able 
to generate XF86Config-4 that will work with this laptop display at 
1024x768.

800x600 and 640x480 work, except they are slightly corrupted and on the 
bottom right corner of the screen, slighlty chopped off and showing on the 
top of the screen.

When using the refresh rates and options on this web page, it works great 
at 1024x768 with zero problems.

Would it be possible to fix the autodetect and configure systems to use 
these or similar working options if this chipset and screen is detected?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Autodetect X or Xconfigurator menu options.
	

Actual Results:  Autodetection doesn't detect the video chipset, and 
manual Xconfigurator choices are unable to make an acceptable working X 
server configuration.

Expected Results:  This new Trident CyberBladeXP chipset should be auto 
detected and configured properly with this laptop display.

This is a web page about a very similar notebook and Linux compatibility, 
with lots of useful information about the status of the Trident driver, 
and settings needed to get it working in XFree86 4.1.0.

I have updated the PCI table in kudzu to have the info for this
chip, and it will appear in the next kudzu package in rawhide.

If it still doesn't work when kudzu is updated, please reopen.

should be fixed with 0.99.20-1 (and the corresponding Xconfigurator)
