It doesn't, at least not out of the box. Its PCI ID is not contained in
TRIDENTPciChipsets. In lspci, it looks like this:

06:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Trident Microsystems CyberBlade XP2
(rev 89)

There is a supplied by the vendor, but that requires an
older Xorg.

What can I try to get this card to work?
