Re: X display problem
XFree86 doesn't support NeoMagic chipsets, except with the VGA16 server which
supports, you guessed it, only 16 colors and crappy resolution (up to 640x480?). There
are two commercial linux X servers which support the chipset, and they are not cheap.
Write an email to NeoMagic registering your disgust that they won't allow XFree86 to
get the technical specs without restriction. CC that email to your laptop
