Re: Radeon 9700 Pro, Vesa, and Debian

I was thinking of purchasing a Radeon 9700 Pro for use in a second Windows XP gaming machine. I would also like to have a partition with a debian setup. Would it be possible to use this video card with the VESA driver? Are most current video cards VESA compliant? I understand that there may not be a linux driver available for some time, but would like to be able to use the card with basic 2D functionality.

I think it will be usable.
Before XFree4.2 debian packages were ready, I used the VESA mode with my Radeon 8500.
