Cool Help with Mandrake 8.1 and ATI Rage Fury Pro


I have just installed Mandrake 8.1 in my desktop computer Toshiba V1100. I had some troubles when configuring the X system: I couldnīt find my graphic card (ATI Rage Fury Pro) neither my monitor (Toshiba TekBright) and the M8.1 installer was always saying something like "Fixed font not found".

Finally, I gave up in trying to configure my X system. However, after I canceled the X configuration, everything seems to be working okay.

I am just worried because two monitors have been damaged by my computer in 6 months. The damage ocurred in the same place when I was trying to get into Windows (after LILO).

Cheers .

6. ATI

3.3.6:

Accelerated support is provided for the Mach8 chips (by the XF86_Mach8 server), Mach32 chips (by the XF86_Mach32 server), the following Mach64 and Rage chips: GX, CX, CT, ET, VT, VT3, GT, RageII+DVD, RagePro (GB, GD, GI, FP, GQ), VT4, Rage IIC (GV, GW, GZ), Rage LT Pro (LD, LB, LI, LP), Rage LT, Rage XL or XC (GL, GM, GN, GO, GR, GS) and Rage Mobility (LM, LN, LR, LS) (by the XF86_Mach64 server). Unaccelerated support is provided for most of the above (except some early Mach8 and Mach32 adapters), as well the old VGAWonder series chipsets (18800, 18800-1, 28800-2, 28800-4, 28800-5, 28800-6) by the XF86_SVGA server with the ati driver. Accelerated support is provided for the Rage 128 chips by the XF86_SVGA server with the r128 driver.
4.2.0:

Accelerated support is provided for Mach64, Rage, Rage 128 and Radeon chips by the "ati" driver, as is unaccelerated support for all of the others except the Mach8 and some early Mach32 chips
Summary:

All hardware supported in 3.3.6 is also supported in 4.2.0 except for Mach8 and some old Mach32 chips.


(from ww.xfree.org)
Note the "ati" driver. But your card should go also by generic vga setting.
