Description sharifi 1999-10-18 11:41:59 EDT
I have Pentium II 400Mhz PC with Trident 3D image PCI video
card. I use XFree86-3.3.5-3 in my redhat 6.1.
XF86Setup or Xconfigurator can not generate a suitable
XF86Config file for SVGA server to work with my video card
but XF86Setup can generate an appropriate XF86Config file
for XF86_VGA16 server.
