Wrong X server for Weitek P9100 cards
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:52 EDT
The P9100 is handled by the SVGA server. Despite the name
it isnt a P9000 compatible device. SVGA supports it as a
dumb frame buffer.
I can't verify this fully as the installer exploded later
on. Dual P90 32Mb RAM - going to try the updated install
This issue has been assigned to a developer for further action.
The /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/Cards file for both 6.1 and 6.2 are showing the P9100
card getting mated with the SVGA server, so there is apparently something else
going on here than a bad declaration.
Xconfigurator owns this card.
Is frame-buffer mode necesarry? Xconfigurator doesn't support that.
'Dumb frame buffer' as in X11 only supports mode setup and mode changes.
Unaccelerated might be a less confusing term.
I think I know where my 9100 is so I may try it
OK - so it doesn't wont FB_Dev or something similar. Please test the new one,
Did you ever get a chance to test it?
Havent found where I put the card yet
Closed due to lack of user feedback. Reopen if you find the card :)
