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
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):
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
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)
