Voodoo cards

2000-07-21 Thread Coleman Kane
I recently studied the tech docs for the Voodoo3 and Voodoo Banshee and committed a patch that might (hopefully) fix the trouble mixing the /dev/3dfx driver with XFree86 4.0. Could someone with a Voodoo3 or BAnshee try it out and give me dmesg and X output and an overall review of what occurred?
