Hi Martin,

Can you be more specific, eg., which Diamond card? I'm using a
Diamond Stealth 64 (Trio64) DRAM 2MB PCI PNP card and I have not had one
ounce of trouble with it. I'm currently running 2.1.8 and xdm. I do have
one weird problem though, that isn't video related (I don't think!). xdm
is my runlevel 5 and sometimes it never comes up. runlevel says 5, and
only VC1 is usable... I can manually startx, so I think this is an rc.d
problem. Anyway, hope this is useful info for tracking your problem, and
good luck.
