Since I last mailed you, I have committed the following to the Debian XFree86 SVN trunk: r1373 | branden | 2004-05-10 13:39:21 -0500 (Mon, 10 May 2004) | 17 lines Update (from XFree86 CVS, 2003-12-18) the XFree86 X server's PCI bus handling code and device recognition databases from CVS. Resync patch #452. Delete superseded patch #453. + Simplify internal interfaces in the PCI code and remove the Xserver's interference with normal PCMCIA operation (Marc La France). + Fixed typo in getPciBiosTypes() (Bugzilla #382, Jakub Bogusz). + Change DEVID macro to work around glitch in SCO's C compiler (Marc La France). + Fixed support for 64bit PCI bus on 32bit systems (Egbert Eich). + Be a little more precise about differentiating between active and inactive non-video PCI resources (Marc La France). + Fix bug in detection of multi-function PCI devices (Marc La France, in partial resolution of Bugzilla #574). + Rip out incorrect limits on the number of PCI buses an ix86 chipset can handle and implement an improved solution for avoiding "phantom" PCI buses (Marc La France, Bugzilla #604). That last item may hold out some hope for your motherboard. -- G.
