  No, I did not install X11, because the machine had just 8MB of memory.
I used it for non graphics
 applications,  and a little programming when I was on the move. I have
since then moved up to a
 Olivetti Pentium 90, which runs  FreeBSD 2.2.1 and X11 like a dream :-)

 It may be that my memory fails me, but did TI use Chips & Technologies
VGA controller chips?

 Have you tried these or Cirrus Logic (which I believe the newer TI's
use)?

 Sorry about not being able to help you out on this.

Best regards,

FreeBSD  since 1.0e
[ Now running FreeBSD 2.2.5 on an Intel R440LX with 1 PII-233, waiting
for my 2x333 MHzPII's with ECC L2 cache to arrive.  3.0-Snap next.]
