Hello all,

I am working with a new configuration and have run into a problem.


ABit VA-10 Motherboard (S3 UniChrome Integrated VGA)
512 MB Ram
Athlon 2500 XP+
10 GB IDE HD (/boot, /, & swap)
40 GB IDE HD (/mythdata)
Sony DVD -/+ RW


(Installed from Jarod's HOWTO...AWESOME!!!)
Fedora Core 1
Kernel 2.4.22-1.2163.nptl_34.rhfc1.at

If I use the default "vesa" driver in X, I get sync issues with the video.
If I install an NVidia GE4, All is well. What I want to do is use the
Integrated S3 UniChrome, but when I install the driver from VIA's site,
(which requires some creativity - the drivers are binaries and expect me to
use RH9...anyway) X looks great, beautiful colors, games look good... Any
video thru mplayer (including live TV) comes up as a green screen.

Does anyone have any ideas? Is there a better S3 UniChrome driver?

Thanks a million,

Andy Delgado
