    savage driver


    I have an s3 savage chipset on my graphics card. How do I tell if I have the driver in XFree86 config and how do I install it? I am new to the command line and running SUSE 9.0

    Easiest way is to open a terminal and type

    less /etc/X11/XF86Config

    or

    less /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 (not sure which Suse uses)

    There'll be a section called 'device' and under driver you should see "s3" written. It may be VESA or summat else though, depending on what's been configured during install.

    Or you could just view the file using konqueror or nautilus in the gui.
