View Full Version : [ubuntu] S3 Savage / Viper II Z200 Problems with tvtime, mplayer, xawtv, flash

July 19th, 2008, 08:53 PM
Hello! I just installed Ubuntu 8.04 on an old Pentium 2 400Mhz PC, with 256 MB Ram and Viper II Z200 graphic card. When I run mplayer or tvtime I get a blurred picture with very false colors and I have to restart ubuntu. xawtv also doesn't work, I get disturbances spread over the screen.

Here is my xorg.conf
Section "Device"
Identifier "Configured Video Device"

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: S3 Inc. 86C410 Savage 2000 (rev 02)

I already tried tu run dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
but I couldnt change the driver to savage. So what is the correct driver and how do I change it?

Yours Hans
