    Default Savage iX problems

    I am wondering where i can get a driver for a s3 savage ix agp 8 meg
    chip...i have one but so far installing it has defied all attempts and
    advice....this is the install.sh file i am using in place of the one in
    the tarball which i have uploaded for inspection at:

    [url]http://www.faithwalk.org/s3savage-1.0-13.tgz.gz[/url]

    Any ideas or advice on getting this driver installed onto mandrake 9.1
    would be highly appreciated.


    p.s. this is mandrake 9.1 i am trying to get this driver to work in..if
    somebody has a better driver let me know..:)

    #! /bin/sh

    #
    # Simple script to install the S3 Savage server and tools.
    #

    #if [ ! -e /usr/X11R6/bin/XF86Setup ]; then
    # echo You must have XFree86 installed.
    # exit
    #fi

    if [ $EUID != "0" ]; then
    echo You must be root to install the server and tools.
    exit
    fi

    install -s -m 755 -o 0 -g 0 XF86_SVGA /usr/X11R6/bin/XF86_SVGA
    install -s -m 4755 -o 0 -g 0 s3switch /usr/X11R6/bin/s3switch
    install -m 444 -o 0 -g 0 s3switch.1x /usr/X11R6/man/man1/s3switch.1x

    rm -f /usr/X11R6/bin/X
    ln -s /usr/X11R6/bin/XF86_SVGA /usr/X11R6/bin/X
    rm -f /etc/X11/X
    ln -s /usr/X11R6/bin/XF86_SVGA /etc/X11/X

    echo Installation complete.

    Knoppix has an execellent hardware (especially graphic card adapter)
    detection, which runs completely off the CD. When it recognized your
    graphic card check out /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 for details, you will probably
    gets hints concerning the correct driver.

    You can download the latest Knoppix version here:

    KNOPPIX_V3.2-2003-09-05-EN.iso

    Kind regards, Joerg.
