Re: which xserver to use on Ultra2 ?
I had a similar problem with a U2 and a 3D Creator. After much
Google'ing I was able to determine it was a problem with one of the
modules for XFree86 -- it didn't seem to like the 3D Creator cards.
Specifically it was the "DRI" module. If you do a
"dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86" and de-select this module, it should
work for you. An excerpt from my XF86Config-4 is below.
Hope this helps.
