I have a laptop running a Gentoo Linux distro. It has a S3 Savage IX/MV card that
worked very well until I emerge this XFree version. Indeed I used to have some
very smooth gradients in 24bbp mode (this is quite logical). But now all I get is
some really crap gradients. For instance a gradient looks like big rectangles that
you put together. It just looks like if the card was running in 16bpp or lower mode.
I think you picture what it looks like.
I did not change anything in my XF86Config file and the XFree logs tell me that
the X server *does* run in 24bpp mode (truecolor). By the way I used the savage
driver which is the good one.
Any idea ?
Thanks a lot :-)
Any samples ?
Sure, here's an attachment having a screenshot + the XFree log and configuration

Here's all I can give you ...
Can you try a different version of the driver from:
Version in ebuild is 1.1.25t.
The ebuild has the latest version ... What strikes me is that the problem
appeared when I emerged Xfree-4.2.1-r2 ...
Actually 1.1.26t is the latest version ...
I'll check that asap then :-)
Maybe I'll have to wait this week-end but I'll keep you informated.
It works indeed better with the driver from probo.com :-)
Ok, updated to 1.1.27t.
