Can't find video card
I think I may have obscured the issue with earlier posts, so let me back up and
start over. I have recently installed potato on a G4. Installed Xwindows, from
CD. The configuration gave me the message that it couldn?t determine the video
card and, I think, stopped. At least, it didn?t ask any more questions. Now when
I do startx it fails, saying ?cannot open mouse (no such file or directory). The
mouse is a one button Apple USB optical mouse. The video card is a Rage 128 Pro. xviddetect gives ?unable to determine driver for video card?. There is no ?/dev/input/mice? or ?/dev/usbmouse?file. I have tried to find something relevant
in the archives, but without much success.
My questions are: Is the problem the video card, not the mouse? Or both?
How do I tell it what the video card is? How do I tell it what the mouse is and/or
get it to work with same? Sorry if all this is stupid/basic/newbie, but I?ve run out
of ideas for experiments to try. Any help would be most appreciated.
