I have got VGA working on Tyan S2865, it uses ATI (vendor 1002) RageXL
(device 4752) , it looks like you have a RageXL also (but different
What I did was to use the linuxbios native drivers/ati/ragexl, not the
VGA BIOS. (drivers/pci/onboard)
device pci 9.0 on end # PCI
device pci 6.0 on end
And don't prepend VGA BIOS or shrink size of linuxbios.
Then i arrange for the linux initrd to load module atyfb.ko
fbconsole is enabled, and X.org works with driver "fbdev", but not
"ati", since "ati" driver wants to run VGA BIOS.
This doesn't give support to linuxbios, only once linux has booted, but
it's a start. I haven't tried, but there might be support in
