A7A266 and Radeon


I just upgraded my motherboard and processor. I put in an Asus A7A266 motherboard. Everything works perfectly except that now my ATI Radeon 64 DDR has ceased to work. I heard other rumors of this happening to people using linux before. I know the card is seated properly, and everything is set up correctly bc it worked great before the new mb. The rumored fix for this is to install windows, and the drivers for the Radeon in windows, and then for some reason the card will begin to work in linux. I dont know why this would work, even if it does, but I dont have a copy of windows to install, nor the money to buy it. Anyone else got any ideas?

Not any good ones...

Have you looked here?

http://dri.sourceforge.net/


Have you gone here?

http://www.linuxhardwaredatabase.com...php3?DISP?1844


Otherwise, dump the card and get something else.


As for it having to be configured in Windows, I smell a PCI IRQ rat...


Can you post the link where you found this info?

Thanks,


John

Nah, its too good a card for that. And I found the problem. The Ali Magick chipset isnt fully supported yet, so I wouldnt be able to use any AGP video card actually. Atleast that's what the ALI people are saying. And thats the only explanation that seems viable.

Sorry to hear that, it kinda sucks being on the bleeding edge...

Video drivers

Hey,

I've got an Asus A7M-266 with AOpen GForce-2-256 MX card.....

That totally rocks! I'm glad that the nVidia drivers were supported!

Took a little while to get all of that straight, but once I did, screen looks totally awsome....

Keep trying, the ATI card is even better than this!

GForce2-256MX is AGP!

Yeah,

It's AGP 4X (I think, AGP for sure) and it works well with RedHat 7.1. All I had to do was follow the directions posted at the nVidia site in relation to changing the xfree86.conf file.

In fact, it's working better than another machine that I've got going with an old ATI Mach64. I'm finding that it's jamming up!
