ati rage 128


i have sarge kernel 2.6.8-2-k7
I would like to get this card running but can't find any drivers for the rage 128
Ati only has radeon 8500 up and FireGL
The only thing i have found is http://www.linuxhelp.net/guides/atirage/
Please note that as of XFree86 3.3.6, ATI-RAGE 128 cards are supported. This guide is obsolete if you are using XFree86 3.3.6 or higher.
any help would be nice

As far as I know ATI Rage 128 is supported out of box. At least in version that I use (in Sarge) 4.3.0 it works without any problem. Also I had never problems with this card even in older release - potato or woody.

When you configure x xerver just choose ATI cards - and all will work!!!
I can play OpenGL 3D games without any additional drivers installation

To work the tv-tuner on the ati rage 128 you have to use gatos, but i think there is also an apt-getable package, just search for gatos in aptitude or synaptic.
