Description David Balažic 2000-08-07 14:49:56 UTC
During GUI install my Diamond Viper 550AGP is recognized as rivaTNT,
alltough the Viper550 is also in the list.
The memory is detected (?) as 256kB , should be 16 MB ( in TUI it is
preset at 8MB ).
It is a TNT based card and it works, but it would be nice to
list it by it's real name.

As for the card name, that is foremost a convenience for people manually
specifying their cards. As it is a TnT-based card, this is not a bug.

As for the memory detection (done by kudzu), the Nvidia cards doesn't seem to
return the correct values all the time - mostly they seem to return "4 MB" on
this VESA BIOS call no matter what they have.
