Re: Voodoo3 2000 problems in Woody

Hash: SHA1

YES YES YES! It will work! I have a Voodoo3 Card working on my Beige G3/266. 
It willl work! Stop whining. If you are using 2.2.x kernels, you've got to 
manually patch the kernel, since the code isn't in there. If you are running 
2.4.x kernels, you won't have to. Sheesh. There's a page about getting this 
setup going at http://v.favrenicolin.free.fr/linuxppc/linuxppc-tdfx.php3
