[ale] Diamond Speedstar A50



You'll need to get the latest XFree 86 X server (I think it's 3.3.3) 

The following in your XF86Config might also help, if you actually want
it to work!!!


   Subsection "Display"
        Depth       16
        #Modes       "1024x768" "1152x864"
        Modes       "1152x864"
        #Option      "noaccel"
        Option       "sw_cursor"
        Option       "no_bitblt"
        Option       "fast_vram"
        Option       "ext_eng_queue"
        #Option       "no_imageblt"
        #Option         "hw_clocks"
        ViewPort    0 0
    EndSubsection
