Before running Ubuntu, I was a happy Debian user. I never got my S3
Savage8 video chip to work with Direct Rendering so I could use hardware
accelerated OpenGL, however.
0000:01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: S3 Inc. VT8375 [ProSavage8
Is the relevant part of the output of lspci.
I did read http://www.probo.com/timr/savage40.html, so I tried the
drivers at http://dri.freedesktop.org/~dri/snapshots/ . After quite a
bit of hassling I got it to compile but loading the module in XFree86
did not work out.
With Ubuntu it still doesn't work - at least not by default.
Does Ubuntu aspire to get this to work by default, for example
Is there anything I can do to help?
Why not? Because of problems with migration to Xorg?
Thanks in advance,
