Which video card is supported for a DEC Alpha?
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii
I have installed Debian Linux v. 3.1 (sarge) for an Alpha computer system. I am using a DEC Alpha motherboard 164-LX running at 533 MHZ. I have tried using a Matrox Millennium II video card in both MGA and VGA modes and have been getting an xfree86 server crash saying that the "screen is not found". I have also tried an older Trident video card running it in VGA mode with the same error.
I would like to know which video card is supported for a DEC Alpha by Debian Linux without having to modify the kernel? I am sure that someone is out there who is actually running a system like mine with a working video card? I would like to know the make and model of the card that you are using and the extent to which it works.
I am looking ahead for a reply that can be helpful to me in getting this system running in x-windows mode with bothe the KDE and Gnome desktops.
