I got an old TFT that uses a special connector to a CHIPS ct65554 graphics
card. However, although the ct65554 is listed as supported, it is not
recognized by the chips driver. System is FreeBSD 7-Release AMD64. I am
pretty sure that the same xorg.conf worked under i386.
pciconf -lvc claims device='65554 Flat Panel/LCD CRT GUI Accelerator'" for the
card, however although i do have an xorg.conf "Device" section containing
X wont start up. Xorg.0.log complains:
(II) CHIPS: Driver for Chips and Technologies chipsets: ct65520, ct65525,
ct65530, ct65535, ct65540, ct65545, ct65546, ct65548, ct65550,
ct65554, ct65555, ct68554, ct69000, ct69030, ct64200, ct64300
(II) Primary Device is:
(WW) CHIPS: No matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:3:7:0) found
(EE) No devices detected.
