    Savage Driver(S3 Savage Pro KM266) Here

    For those who use s3 savage pro km266 video chip here is the driver.
    I took it from mandrake 10. I got tired of typing fb cheat at boot prompt so I remastered knoppix with this driver in /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/.

    I do hope this will help you http://eksanz.tripod.com/LinuxFiles/savage.zip

    Thanks. I loaded up Knoppix on a box belonging to a friend of mine with the Savage chip and I had to use fb. Oddly I tried running Mandrake 10 on his box and although X would start KDE would lock up. If I get a chance to work on his machine again I may use this.

    You can put the savage driver manually evrytime knoppix is running -well,I believe you know that more than I do-being the moderator/expert here!

    If mandy 10 works on other types of dm then it is not a driver issue.

    Yes. I just not sure when I'll have access to his box again.

    Drivers issues.

    Hi,
    first thanks for sending me the drivers.

    I copied the savage_drv.o in /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/, but when i run the xf86cfg config script, i cannot find the driver for s3 savage KM266, so... what I did wrong, or what I have to do???

    Thanks in advance.


    Giorgio.

    edit your /etc/X11/xf86config-4 like this:
    Section "Device"
    Identifier "Card0"
    # The following line is auto-generated by KNOPPIX mkxf86config
    Driver "savage"
    VendorName "All"
    BoardName "All"
    # BusID "PCI:1:0:0"
    EndSection

    then restart knoppix.It should be able to automatically detect the driver and display correctly.
