I have had trouble trying to install X on my system (6.0 Light Final built on March 31, 2009).
It is a laptop (model n30n3-15, apparently sold under various brands, no brand on this one); its video card (S3 Inc. 86C380 [ProSavageDDR K4M266] ) ) should work with the savage driver.
After using the configuration tools, I just get an unresponsive black screen (xorg.conf tries to use the savage driver).
The solution I found so far it is to choose the vesa configuration (xorg.conf-vesa); video is slow.
Is there anything else that I can do to use the savage or any other accelerated driver?
