Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2001-08-25 13:31:01 EDT
You need to upgrade your kudzu and Xconfigurator to the latest then,
because the card is listed, and should work:

From the Cards database in Xconfigurator:

NAME ATI Rage 128 (generic)

NAME ATI Rage 128
SEE ATI Rage 128 (generic)

NAME ATI Xpert 2000 AGP
SEE ATI Rage 128 (generic)

From the kudzu pcitable:
0x1002  0x5446  "Card:ATI Rage 128"     "ATI|Rage 128 Pro TF"

When the card is probed, the PCI ID is looked up in the table, which
returns that the card is an "ATI Rage 128", this name gets looked up
in the "Cards" database, which has a SEE "ATI Rage 128 (generic)" entry,
and this is what should end up getting placed in the configuration
file.  If someone decides to manually choose their card from the
list of cards, they will be able to pick the "ATI Xpert 2000 AGP"
entry if they like, but it really makes no difference.  The r128
driver handles *all* r128 cards, and internally when X starts up,
the driver figures out just which card you have (the TF in this case),
and will display this to the X server log.
