I have been running an SGI-1600SW display using a 3dLabs VX1-1600 for a
number of years using XFree 4.3 for many years. I have not been able to
upgrade to later versions of SuSE due to the change from XFree to X.org.
For some reason X.org does not like the VX1-1600--or at least I, as
well as many other people, have been unable to get it to work.
I tried selecting both the display and display card during the install
as well as attempting to build a conf file by hand using my existing
conf file as a starting point. No luck on either front.
Does anybody know what changed between Xfree 4.3.99 and X.org or even
better have any ideas on how to make this hardware work?
