???? ET6000 with SVGALIB ????

I´ve got a problem using my STB Lightspeed 128 (ET6000 based) graphics
card with SVGALIB. As I can see ET6000 chip is not supported in linux
yet. But my problem is also using VGA modes with it. The only mode it
works is 320x200. I guess I did not set libvga.config right, but I
don´t know how to do it. I´ve read all of README files and lots of
HOWTO´s but I don´t see the solution.

Tetris-vga is working fine, koules-svgalib is working only with switch
-l which indicates 320x200 resolution. Some other programs/games
aren´t working (sdoom for instance - although it works in Xwindows
fine)

I would like at least mode 640x480 would be detected and working.

I´m having linux kernel 2.0.27, RedHat 4.1 distribution.

Thanks for any hint!

libvga.config is very similar to XF86Config - pick
the appropriate mode from XF86Config and ...

I know basic things about libvga.conf, so I have already done this. I have copied modeline for mode "640x480" to libvga.conf but programs don´t recognise this (it looks so). Like I wrote: koules-vga doesn´t work without switch -l (for 320x200 resolution) and other programs that want to set resolution by them selves don´t work.
There might have been troubles with mouse also. Sdoom don´t recognise it properly. I have Microsoft serial mouse and I have defined it in svgalib.conf - I´ve tried both: autodetect and mouse 1 (or 2 - I don´t know now).
I don´t know which problem has priority, but I think it is graphics, because mouse is working properly in koules.

Is there any way to set default resolution (for instance 320x200 or beter 640x480). I saw that mach32 chip has (for me) beter setup with define <mode x colors>.

Any ideas about that??
Thanks again.
