Any guidance you all could give me would be appreciated.
I checked the Docs and I believe I need to run 'xf86config' to change
xserver but X doesn't come up afterward.
At the end of the Install process I elected to erase the .deb files.
Is it possible that all the various drivers were erased at that time?
Where do I go from here.
Thanks in advance.
I think the S3 Trio64 is supported by the xserver-s3 package. That
is the Xfree86 3.3.6 packages, I don't belive that chip s supported by
the 4.x.x series. You might have to install this package as well as the
xserver-vga to get the basic graphical configuration tools working.
