Don't know about 128 cards, but can share my experience with old RagePro. SVGAlib did not have Mach64 support until recently so it wasn't working for me at all. Also RagePro cards are not VESA 2.0 compliant, so until recently SVGAlib was useless to me. ATI has been uptight about their specs until a few months ago. My suggestion - if you can buy what's supported so that others start thinking about supporting Open Source.
