Description Alan Cox 2000-10-17 22:02:43 UTC
On a SIS530 chipset board with an ATI rage card plugged into it and onboard
video Xconfigurator tries to write an Xconfig file for the onboard video
even when its not the primary card. Xconfigurator should check the card is
occupying the ISA legacy video windows before configuring it in preference
to another card.

If it owns some of the 0xD0000->0xDFFFF range addresses then its the
primary card.

Comment 1 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-10-17 22:05:30 UTC
Xconfigurator FTTB can't handle multiple video cards (e.g. selecting one of
them). This will be added in the rewrite.

Comment 2 Alan Cox 2001-01-31 16:04:41 UTC
Note this change of title is misleading. The on board video is NOT available its
PCI resources are
disabled. Thus this is seperate to things like having four 3DFX cards in a
single PC. Its a bug that
wants fixing not a quirk.

Title adjusted
