Re: PWS600au X problem

Well, this is good to know.
Jay, I think that I will follow your advice and get a supported video card.
Thank you very much to both of you.

p.s. Jean-Francois, I tried to include the BusID line in the device section
     of the XF86Config file ... with no success

What you have in your box is an Integraph Powerstorm 4D50T, an option
that DEC OEM'ed, a high-end card that includes a Cirrus Logic (simple)
VGA to perform text mode operation.

There IS NO DRIVER for the Integraph accelerator, and I believe there
may be no (current) driver for the Cirrus. And even if there IS, it
most likely only has 512K (yes, K!) of video memory attached to it.

My recommendation: find a nice Permedia-2 or Matrox Millennium card
and pull the 4D50T and sell it on Ebay... ;-}

Unless, of course, you're willing to run only VMS or Tru64 on there,
and then that card would be OK...

Good luck.
