sw mandrake 10.1 kernel 2.6.8 Xorg 6.7
hw pc ibm pentium II 400 mhz with S3 on board video card.
right of the S3 chipset on the mainboard there is an agp connector.
i installed a matrox MGA 400 AGP card
on this slot
card memory 16Mb,video size 64mb
i have to choose main video between AGP
and PCI ....
now the first questions :
1)what is the difference running this card in AGP or PCI mode ?
2) what is video size ? (does agp mode a part of main computer memory ?)
now sw configuration
i configure with harddrake the card with 16mb of memory and enabled the 3D acceleration.
but i'm unable to play linux games (i.e cannon smash) with 3d accelarion...isaw slow motionand a lot of lost frames.
in the recent past i installed the same card on a new linux installation (same products) on a pentium III pc 500 mhz
and i was able to play cannon smash.
i installed the card on a pc and then i installed all mandrake 10.1
3)what i miss adding theis card to my pc whare a mandrake 10.1 already exists ?
thanks in advance
