Please attach your X config file, X log file, and the output of the command
"lspci -vvn" and I will investigate the hardware database to ensure the
proper driver is being selected, and if not, fix it for future releases.

I have change my graphic card !

I dont hown a S3 anymore
Comment 3 Mike A. Harris 2003-01-26 17:16:22 EST
Ok, I've updated the hardware database to use the "vesa" driver, so others
don't have problems.

Thanks for the update.
