Btw, to at least send an useful mail: I have an s3 trio card here, not supported, and I want to merge all s3 drivers to the savage one (opensource) and then put it in our CVS. Question is: Anyone here has S3 (trio, virge, ...) datasheet ??? Nothing on s3.com and s3graphics.com anymore, the only thing I get is broken urls from google: http://www.geocities.com/Tokyo/Towers/6851/data.htm Searching for the filenames (po36vdgx.pdf) don't give more results, and even web.archive.org doesn't have them :-( so if someone has some handy, mail me please (and don't forget to add the url to: http://wiki.bebits.com/page/DriverDevelopment ) François.
