This weekend I tried to install the lastest version of XFree (4.2.99.3, which will be 4.3 after some bug fixing), and I couldn't make it properly work in my SuperSavage IX/C (Thinkpad T23). It complained about not finding any modes in the BIOS (then I used some modelines), and it does not work with other bpps than 8. I had to switch off and on the LCD so it would show any image.

It seemed that X was using a frame buffer engine, not the same that it used in previous versions for my graphics chipset. Does somebody has more information about it?


PS I had to rollback to 4.2.1-r2, so I had a computer to work )
