Putting the ATI card into a pc:
00:0b.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc 210888GX [Mach64 GX]
(rev 02) (prog-if 00 [VGA])
Control: I/O- Mem- BusMaster- SpecCycle- MemWINV- VGASnoop- ParErr-
Stepping+ SERR- FastB2B-
Status: Cap- 66Mhz- UDF- FastB2B- ParErr- DEVSEL=medium >TAbort-
<TAbort- <MAbort- >SERR- <PERR-
Interrupt: pin A routed to IRQ 10
Region 0: Memory at dd000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [disabled]
Expansion ROM at e7fe0000 [disabled] [size=64K]
Bus 0, device 11, function 0:
VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc 210888GX
[Mach64 GX] (rev 2).
Non-prefetchable 32 bit memory at 0xdd000000 [0xddffffff].
And now from the Pulsar:
Booting from the debian boot floppy:
MacOS display is /bandit/pci-bridge/ATY,mach64
Using unsupported 1152x870 ATY,mach64 at 81800200, depth=16, pitch=2304
lspci : command not found
nearly the same as above for the ATI card.
cpu : 604e
clock : 170MHz
maschine: Power Macintosh
motherboard: AAPL,???? MacRISC
L2 cash: 512k unified
I hope this helps.
Is there someone who uses a pulsar with linux?
