X on NeoMagic



I just got a Gateway 2500 se, which comes with a NeoMagic MagicGraph
128XD. 

I saw that X supports this but the version that comes with 2.1 doesn't. 

I need to things. First how to just upgrade X. (I don't want to go over to
potato if I can avoid it), or how to replace it with a new version I
compile my self.

Second How to figure how much Video Ram it has (It still has Win 98 on it,
so I can play games on the road), which I assume I need, as every other
time I set up X it needed it.

Super Probe says its a:
Chipset: Yamaha 6388 VDPC (Port Porbed) 
RAMDAC: Generic 8-bit pseudo-color DAC 
(with 6-bit wide lookup tables (or in 6 bit mode))

After That I'll work on getting pcmcia, and ethernet to work

G:  All right sir.  See the little box with the row of lights on the front?
    We'll call that the wiggly-diggly.
Cu: Uh-huh.
G:  When the lights on the wiggly-diggly flash rapidly, click on the
    thingamajig, and your doodlybum should open.  Voila!  You're connected.
Cu: Okay ... yeah, I think I got it.  Thanks!
Ch: Say Greg?
G:  Yeah Chief?
Ch: Don't you think that call was a little ... ohh ... precedent setting?
G:  If you're trying to terrify me, it's too damn late.
