This specific chip is currently not supported in XFree86 sources, however
I might be able to add support perhaps.
Do you know what RAMDAC this card has on it? The S3 hardware can have
any of a number of different RAMDAC chips on them, and XFree86 only has
support for some of them. I'm trying to add support for the 8903, but need
You might have to look at the actual chips themselves right on the card,
and write down the part numbers and add them to bugzilla. That would be
a big help.
Also, did this card ever work before, perhaps in Red Hat Linux 7.0/1/2/3?
If you've got an XFree86 log file from RHL 7.x around using the 3.3.6 X
server, that would provide a pile of useful info to me as well.
Thanks in advance.
Please upgrade to Fedora Core 2 or later, and if this issue turns
out to still be reproduceable, please file a bug report in the
X.Org bugzilla located at http://bugs.freedesktop.org in the
