This is a fresh install of Redhat 9 (Xfree 4.3.0 dated 2/27) on a Shuttle FX41 m/b with an Athalon 1300. The install correctly identified the video as S3 Inc. [ProSavageDDR K4M266]. When X starts up, the monitor loses sync as soon as it exits text mode. If I use ALT|CTRL|+ and - to scroll through the different screen resolution, the monitor syncs up, and after that, I can select *ANY* of the scan rates.

Install thinks ALL of these should work:

1600x1200
1400x1050
1280x1024
1280x960
1152x964
1024x768
800x600
640x480

...and they all do, but only AFTER I select 1152x964 or some of the others. Then it works on every resolution.

I moved 1152x964 to the top of the list in XF86Config so the thing at least starts up with the screen visible, but obviously it shouldn't be this way.

Please cc your reply to the email addres, if possible.

Thanks,
