I have a VIA VT8361 Chipset with a Trident Microsystems CyberBlade/i1 for onboard video (no other video cards) according to the K Info Center.
Just an update...............got a message from Daniel.......................the installer starts for him now so we are on the right track....
I just tested B4.1 on my troubled (older) machine and, again, X cannot start properly. Same exact issues I mentioned in my previous post.
...just looked there is no r128 driver in the new X.org maybe a symlink to the ati driver will solve it?
Umm, no. In my opinion, this is not the appropriate modus operandi. Adding this or that bit, here and there, willy nilly to the installer, is not proper software engineering.
Once Daniel's machine works, then what? Once newt's machine works, then what? One requires an installation software that is bullet proof, not an ad hoc collection of this or that, tacked on fancifully, as if painting a cubist landscape. This SOHO release has to be an effort reminiscent of the most mundane activity in engineering 101: THOROUGH, ACCURATE, and most importantly --> COMPLETED in accordance with the specifications' document. Is there a specifications' document for this project? Perhaps there is no requirement for a graphics installer that accommodates ten year old hardware?
But, if there is such a specification, that is, a requirement, that this newest Vector SOHO release function properly on any PIII system, irrespective of graphics controller, then the installer software must embrace all
of those hardware components found, and regulated well, by windows 95, i.e. software that is fifteen years old!!! In my offices, that includes Firewire cameras....hahaha! (none of that new fangled USB junk for me!!!)
