Thank you, that was useful. However, for the past 48 hours, I configured and reconfigured my xorg.conf file over and over again, in an attempt to start my X server, but i was met with failure over and over again.
The following is the output for video card info from lspci -v:
VGA compatible controller: ATI technologies Inc 3D Rage III 215GT [Mach64 GT] (prog-if 00 [VGA])
Subsystem: Ati Technologies Inc 3D rage I/II 215GT [Mach64 GT]
Flags: bus master, stepping, medium devsel, latency 32
Memory at e0000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16M]
I/O ports at 6400 [size: 256]
Memory at e1001000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=4k]
[virtual] Expansion ROM at 10000000 [disabled] [size=128k]
I did not exactly understand everything the output said, however, I was able to gather, and correct me if I am wrong, that the memory size of my card is 16 Meg, and that it can handle a 256 bit color depth. Am I correct? I tried to input the latter values during my X server configuration, but got errors every time I attempted to start X.
Can someone please confirm if I got the correct values from the above input?
