Re: Can't find video card
Thanks for your message. This is most useful. I don't know if you
will have seen my response to Matt Brubeck on this subject, but in it
I said I was coming to this conclusion about the version also, but that
my next question is, can I upgrade just XFree86, or even just the driver,
rather than the whole system? Any advice here would be most appreciated.
Thanks again for you reply.
