Question about getting the ATI XLrage working...
I tried the new ati/xlrage driver on an arima/hdama. Linuxbios reports:
ati_regbase = 0xfd002400
ati_ragexl_init: 3D RAGE (XL PCI-33MHz) [0x4752 rev 0x27] Devices
Im then loading the atyfb.o framebuffer kernel module (I assume this is
the right one to use). The screen then does some init and switches to a
video mode the monitor seems happy with, but nothing but lines appear
(much like the lines you get when X doesnt recognize the video right)
Using fbset to change video modes does seem to work, the screen
resolution changes, but I cant use the fbdevice with any frame buffer
test programs or with X (the lines never go away).
(1) to get the framebuffer working as the graphical console, and
(2) get this working under X.
Is there some secret to getting this working? Maybe I am missing an
important step or something....
Also, Im assuming that in order to use the framebuffer as the console, I
can pass "vga = 792" and "video=atyfb:mode:1024x768,font:SUN12x22" to
linux when it boot.
Do I need to set CONFIG_CONSOLE_VGA = 1 in Config.lb?
any help is appreciated.
