Re: Violence: Lethal StarOffice, terminal Apache, brokenpartitions...


I have a Stealth 3D 2000 and I'm using the S3V server too.  The question, then, is what to do?

Exactly what I get, down to the last detail.

I considered that. But:
	a) every other X application works
	b) Netscape had to have a .deb to install properly, perhaps StarOffice has the
same condition?

Diamond Stealth family, 2000, I think. As opposed, I THINK, to the Diamond
Stealth 3D 2000. Maybe. Erm. I'm reluctant to crack the case open again to have
a look and I got the card bundled with the motherboard, so I don't have the
case. I'm tracking down a Winborg program to do the identification for me.

My Xserver is the S3V; VGA16 is also installed so I can use XF86Setup (and have
a backup in case S3V ever dies).
