PCI ID for S3 Unichrome Video Card ,help


Does anyone know the PCI ID for the S3 Unichrome Video Card, I have the North Bridge : VIa KM266pro chip set
South Bridge: Via VT8235

The Video Card is built in in the K7VM3 mother board and I need the PCI ID so i Can set it up in my X-server configuration, so it can display correctly in my thin clients. I have tried looking for the internet but i am confused as i am a newbie.

So does any one know the correct PCI -ID for my video Card?

hi!

just type "lspci" (as root) in console. there will be an output like this:

Code:
kai@schlepptop:~$ sudo lspci
Password:
0000:00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corp. Mobile Memory Controller Hub (rev 03)
0000:00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corp. Mobile Graphics Controller (rev 03)
0000:00:02.1 Display controller: Intel Corp. Mobile Graphics Controller (rev 03)0000:00:1c.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corp. 82801FB/FBM/FR/FW/FRW (ICH6 Family) PCI Express Port 1 (rev 03)
0000:00:1d.0 USB Controller: Intel Corp. 82801FB/FBM/FR/FW/FRW (ICH6 Family) USB UHCI #1 (rev 03)
0000:00:1d.1 USB Controller: Intel Corp. 82801FB/FBM/FR/FW/FRW (ICH6 Family) USB UHCI #2 (rev 03)
0000:00:1d.2 USB Controller: Intel Corp. 82801FB/FBM/FR/FW/FRW (ICH6 Family) USB UHCI #3 (rev 03)
0000:00:1d.3 USB Controller: Intel Corp. 82801FB/FBM/FR/FW/FRW (ICH6 Family) USB UHCI #4 (rev 03)
0000:00:1d.7 USB Controller: Intel Corp. 82801FB/FBM/FR/FW/FRW (ICH6 Family) USB2 EHCI Controller (rev 03)
In This example, you fing VGA compatible controler at id 0000:00:02:0 and 0000:00:02.1. In xorg.conf, this results in the following busid:

BusID "PCI:0:2:0" and BusID "PCI:0:2:1"

my xorg uses the first. dunno what the second is for

btw, lspci means afaik "list pci". there is also lsmod, lsusb and maybe more. these tools can really help :-)

cheers,

kai

lspci is a command which tells you all about anything attached to your PCIs ,
the "|" is a so called pipe and it does just this: connecting stuff.
And 'less' is a very handy app which displays text and let you browse through it using the cursor.

You can use this '|less' with most of the console applications.
