I am running woody plus xfree86 4.1.0-16 in a pentium pro machine. The
video card has a s3 virge chipset, so, the xserver-xfree86 runs its
s3virge drive. I have the following problem: at resolutions of 1024x768 or
better, each time the screen is updated appear spurious horizontal line on
it. The problem becomes worse for the high resolutions. At resolutions
lower than the 1024x768 the problem disappears. Does exist a bug in the
s3virge drive of xfree86 4.1? should I move to xfree86 3.3.6?
Thanks in advance for the help!
I suspect that the problem is in the nature of the s3virge card. In the
past I have had a similar problem running Windows with the vendors own
driver. In my case the spurious horizontal lines were only occational.
