Hello, First off I have managed to dust off and boot a very old Compaq Preasario 1200. It runs the CyberBlade/DSTN/i1 chip. By default, running startx causes a hang, this is because it attempts to use non-existent "xaa" module, and for some strange reason, "vesa" instead of trident".
Attached you will see the hanged default xorg attempt at self-configuration.
