similar problems, same card, using Mandrake 8, which has xfree86 4.0.3. The only way I can get it to work, is to go to xfree86 version 3.x, which is unaccelerated, and has crap non-anti-aliased fonts. told me to try red hat. Oh well. Maybe it's time to upgrade the card, but this all seems pretty stupid as it's obviously just a driver issue.

: Some problems occur with my SpeedStar A90 video card and Linux redhat 7.0 (which uses Xfree86 v4.0.1)

: The screen gets totally screwed up when dragging icons, moving windows or scrolling text in X.

: I already checked and upgraded Xfree86 to v4.0.2 which is supposed to support the Savage4 chip in accelareted mode, but that didn't fix my problems

: The only thing I could come up with to fix this is to disable accelaretion by adding the option "NoAccel" in the device section of the XF86Config file.

: Is anyone else experiencing similar problems using this card (or another card with the Savage4 chip) ?
: Or does anybody know how I can get this card to work with accelaration in Linux ??
