Does anybody here know anything about obscure hardware such as the on board devices of my shuttle XPC?
I have read heaps of stuff... asked heaps of questions of several forums and nobody can help me
Shuttle SN41G2 (FN41 motherboard)
AMD XP athlon 2400+
512mb DDR kingston 333mhz
120gb hdd in 3 partitions
20gb = Windows 2000 SP4
5gb = Redhat 7.3
rest = storage (NTFS)
nVidia GeForce4 MX440 shared memory
MAC LAN (nVidia)
- (whats MAC mean? - i got that from my manual)
- Win2k device manager says "nVidia nForce MCP network adapter"
The motherboard is nVidia nForce2 chipset
* Can't get graphics above 600x800 (i can do it with a spare card i have... but i wanna use that in another system so if i could get the onboard to work it would be great!)
* Don't have any sound at all (a warning that pops up when the system enters Redhat says "dev/dsp cannot be found - device does not exist - using null output device")
* Can't detect LAN
Can someone tell me if any of these work and how to get them to work?
Cos I'm fully stumped
The XPC is a small form factor computer... and only has 1xAGP and 1xPCI slot... so i cant go out and buy new cards...
I do have another nVidia 128mb GeForce4 MX440 AGP card which I have plugged in and that seems to run ok... but its is still very dodgy... it runs at about 1/2 the speed of Windows 2000!! I thought unix was spose to be fast?
Even if its just confirmation that its unsupported... then i can go out and buy a dodgy second system for my unix needs...
