what is your video card in this machine ...?

Comment 3 Stephen Rasku 2000-06-27 06:30:34 UTC
It's an ATI card.  I think it's called a Graphics Xpression.  Here are the lspci
details (from bug 12018):

 00:00.0 Host bridge: Acer Laboratories Inc. [ALi] M1451 (rev bd)
 00:02.0 Non-VGA unclassified device: Acer Laboratories Inc. [ALi] M1449 (rev
 00:05.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc 210888GX [Mach64 GX]
 00:06.0 IDE interface: CMD Technology Inc PCI0640 (rev 02)     

 lspci -n gives:

 00:00.0 Class 0600: 10b9:1451 (rev bd)
 00:02.0 Class 0000: 10b9:1449 (rev b2)
 00:05.0 Class 0300: 1002:4758
 00:06.0 Class 0101: 1095:0640 (rev 02)
