Go to www.suse.de/XSuSE/XSuSE_E.html and get their free Trident Server:


XSuSE_Trident

In cooperation with Alan Hourihane we have now added an improved server for Trident based chipsets. It adds:

    Trident 9685 support
    Faster acceleration for all TGUI's
    ClearTV(TM) for 9685 (only at 640x480@25MHz)
    Detection of the latest Cyber chipsets

You can download the XSuSE_Trident and configure it with a modified xf86config.


Good luck!
