Re: XFree86 server for ATI Rage 128 Pro
Thanks to all who responded. I discovered that the Rage128 support in the
XFree86 3.3.6 SVGA xserver does work with this card if you tell it what
the video chipset identification. It appears that the Rage 128 Pro chips
are not properly detected as can be seen in the lines below. I got it to
work by putting the following line in the Device section
Note that this is not the ChipId reported by /proc/pci. That value
(0x5046) gives the same blank screen.
Perhaps this should be inserted in the xf86config database for the
Rage Fury Pro and the Xpert 2000 Pro which are the cards using the
Rage 128 Pro chip.
