[plug] S3 Trio3D AGP

Does anyone have any experience getting an S3 Trio 3D AGP card to work
under XFree86 (3.3.6)?  According to all the docs it *should* work fine
but it just doesn't: the X server starts and apparently runs fine but
won't display anything beyond a blank screen.  At this stage I'm
thinking of trying the framebuffer device (which I've seen some
indication may work with this card based on posts to various mailing
lists) but I don't really understand why the card doesn't work with the
standard XF86 SVGA server.

Any ideas would be appreciated.
