Greetings from Brazil!

I have come across this thread in the mail list archive and I am
wondering if any of you ever got Ubuntu to work with your S3 Savage8
chip with 3D video acceleration.

I have got the same chip on my system:
$ lspci | grep VGA
0000:01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: S3 Inc. VT8375 [ProSavage8

Please note that I´m using Breezy and not Hoary (this thread seems to
be a bit old).

People have advised me to get a real 3D video card, but they're
expensive and I'd really like to get the S3 working - so I can play
Tux Racer!! :o)

Any help will be very welcome, thanks!
