RE: 2.8 on a Dell Optiplex GX-100 with S3 VIRGE/GX video card

No dice on this end... I installed 2.6 no problem, ran XF86Setup (with only
minor mouse problems), then backed up XF86Config to another machine.  I then
installed 2.8 and copied the config file back over to the machine.  Same
issue.  I'm about ready to start pulling out what little hair I have left.

I've been running in a similar problem with an S3 VIRGE/MX (in a 
Toshiba notebook, 490TDC) -- problems which hadn't been present
in OpenBSD 2.6's XFree86. Finally, it worked when copying the 2.6
XF86Config on top of the 2.8 or 2.9 versions (in 2.9 with changing
ps/2 to wsmouse etc.). Not exactly an elegant solution, however, 
I'm too unexperienced for looking at the code.
