Subject(SB16 & Floppy) / DiStealth clashes
I have had this happening for ages now and just wondered if anyone else
has had something similar.

Basically I have a Triton motherboard with and SB16 and Diamond Stealth 64
V2001 plugged into it. Now if I am using the sound card or floppy drive
and then proceed to do lots of heavy graphic ops the machine locks solid
with corruption on the screen.

My current (sad and lonely) solution to the problem is to only use the
floppy and sound in a virtual console where I get no problems (probably
due the low bandwidth). Here's the top of my X output if it's any help:

XFree86 Version 3.1.2 / X Window System
(protocol Version 11, revision 0, vendor release 6001)
Operating System: Linux
Configured drivers:
S3: accelerated server for S3 graphics adaptors (Patchlevel 0)
mmio_928, s3_generic
(using VT number 8)

XF86Config: /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/XF86Config
(**) stands for supplied, (--) stands for probed/default values
(**) Mouse: type: Microsoft, device: /dev/mouse, baudrate: 1200
(**) S3: Graphics device ID: "Diamond Stealth 64 DRAM with S3-Trio64"
(**) S3: Monitor ID: "My Monitor"
(--) S3: Mode "1280x1024" needs hsync freq of 78.86 kHz. Deleted.
(--) S3: Mode "1280x1024" needs hsync freq of 81.13 kHz. Deleted.
(**) FontPath set to "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc/,/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/beeb/,/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Type1/,/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Speedo/,/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi/,/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi/"
(--) S3: card type: PCI
(--) S3: chipset: Trio64 rev. 531
(--) S3: chipset driver: mmio_928
(--) S3: videoram: 2048k
(--) S3: Ramdac type: s3_trio64
(--) S3: Ramdac speed: 135
(--) S3: Using Trio32/64 programmable clock (MCLK 54.886 MHz)

This has been happening for as long as I can remember and fiddling with
build options seems to make little difference. Thoughts?
