Savage

I installed Dapper Flight 4 on my ASRock K7VM2 yesterday. It's a Micro-ATX board with a ProSavage8 IGP.

The ProSavage8 IGP wasn't properly detected and thus Xorg defaulted to the vesa driver. After loading the savage kernel module and changing the Xorg driver to savage I had working 3D acceleration!

After that I had a go with Xgl, it actually worked, it was slow as hell*, but it worked. Compiz wouldn't cooperate though, apparently the ProSavage8 hardware doesn't have support for textures which aren't a power of 2 in size.

* Xgl was actually slower than Xorg in 2D

  • Hi,

    I've got the same ProSavage8 IGP running in Ubuntu. Can you tell me exactly how to get the 3d running?

    Where are the drivers I need to download?

    and how do I then get xorg to recognize it?

    thanks for any help!
