Submitted this to their Web based input yesterday.
  One of your P650 dual output PCI cards is here and I wonder whether it 
  can work in Debian 9.  The 1.4.6 and 1.4.7 installer each fails with 
  an error message.   Any chance of either case being resolved?

  The log is rather long in each case.  I won't try to impose it here.
The reply is essentially a duplication of the information from  
their Web site.  
"For the P650, those are the supported distributions:
    - Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 WS (updates 7 and 8)
    - Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 WS (updates 2 and 3)
    - SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 (sp2)
    - SuSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 11
    - Fedora 10
    - OpenSuse 10.3 and 11.1
    - Ubuntu 8.04 and 8.10"
 And "... try using one of those distributions."  I won't be 
installing Ubuntu 8  to make an old video card work but still wonder 
how far a driver which  makes in Ubuntu 8 is from making in Debian 9.  
If anyone has a tip to  resolve the failure reported in my preceeding 
message, please let me know.
Thanks,                                  ... Peter E.
