RE: [SLE] Integrated Graphic Card
Hi,

Under Xfree 3.3.6, running SaX it's OK, I thought you were talking about
XFree 4.0.3, sorry.
I don't know why it doesn't work under 3.3.6...

I have this kind of chip with both XFree installed and I had no problem at
all.

I had the same problem with versions prior to 4.0.3, once I upgraded XFree
all the problems
got fixed....
You have to upgrade SaX2, too, I think....
