[ale] ViRGE/VX card not Xing in 5.2



OK, well, Mike Kachline's response suggested pulling a switcheroo during
the install and changing the link in /mnt/bin/X11/X to point to XF86_SVGA,
so I might try that.

If I remember, correctly, the S3Virge chipsets are supported by both the
SVGA
and the S3V servers. I seems to recall that the XFree86 folks plan to do
away
with the S3V server and merge it totally into the SVGA server which uses
the
XAA architecture for accerlation.
