The lspci (probably /sbin/lspci) command gives you a list of devices on the
PCI bus. Look for your graphics adapter. In your XF86Config (something like
/etc/X11/XF86Config), section "Device", add the line
where a:b.c is the number you see at the beginning of the lspci line of the
graphics adapter. See the manpages of lspci and XF86Config for additional
info. Maybe you must also write the right driver entry in XF86Config, which
I don't know by heart. And umpf, I just see that (a and b should both be 0,
but) b is given as 2-digit hex value in lspci, but as 2-digit decimal value
in XF86Config. For lspci:Oa, 0b...it would be in XF86Config:10,11...
