Re: New ATI RADEON Mac Edition

Dear Esteban,

(1) Immediate Solution:
Edit your xorg.conf file manually.  In the Device section, change the line
    Driver        "ati"
    Driver        "radeon"
and you should be good to go. It's long puzzled me that xserver-xorg does not have a way to select the radeon driver.

(2) Longer solution.
Forgive me if you've done this already, but have you run `dpkg-reconfigure debconf'? Changing the priority to "low" will make the dpkg-reconfigure tool ask a lot more questions when setting up packages. Then run dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg again, and you can specify the amount of memory your card actually has instead of having xorg making a bad guess.

Hope that helps,

Hello people.

I installed today a new graphic card for my PowerMac G4.

But have problems with GNU/Linux... No detects the correct Video Card.

Linux detect this model: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon R100 QD [Radeon 7200]

But this model have 64MB of video memory... my video card have only 32 and the kcontrol detects 128mb

How i will change the model... I try dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg...
