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.


thanks a lot for your email. If you are right, there is nothing I can do, except change the video card. The remarkable thing is that when I was running xfree86 3.3.6, there was no problem with the s3-server...
