Just like in 6.1, the Cyber9397 graphics hardware in the IBM ThinkPad 770
gives a screen that flickers, especially when viewing
http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla in netscape!
The SVGA server is being used.
here is the note from the XFree86 3.3.6 release notes regarding that driver:
(*) Note, chips marked in this way have either limited support or the drivers
for them are not actively maintained.
I.e. it may or may not get fixed.
