There will be an updated S3 driver in an upcoming patch that allows
some refresh rate support. This will again depened on the type of
card and BIOS you have. You should be able to get a refresh rate
other than 60 hz.
Cool thank you very much. That old card has served me well for a lot of
years. I will be looking for that QNX patch. QNX is the best OS for old
machines. I have an old 133Mhz AMD 486 which I was thinking of donating.
I had Linux on it and X was drag. Photon is a quick quick and pretty
GUI… something I thought I would never see on 486. QNX makes a great
thin client on ‘obsolete’ hardware. Thanks for a great product.
There will also be a graphics driver development kit very soon so that
interested third parties can do drivers for some of the hardware we can’t
justify spending manpower on.
Hopefully some of you pick up the ball and make it even better for `obsolete’
