Hi there, does any one out there use an ATI Vga Wonder video card with X?
Mine works fine except that when you quit X, the screen is all corrupted and you can't
see the characters anymore.  All you see is a bunch of vertical lines accros the screen.
It uses the 18800-1 (I think) chip and it has 512k of memory, thanx

Try XFree86 2.1.1.  If that doesn't work, you'll probably have to start up
XFree86 2.1 with the runx script found in the svgalib package.

1. ati wonder pro or ati wonder radeon video card

Hi,

I was wondering which agp video card would be better with linux and my
computer.

1. ALL-IN-WONDER 128 pro 32mb, agp, rage chipset
2. all-in-wonder radeon 32mb, agp, radeon chipset

Right now (2) is my top choice because it appears to have newer
hardware and more functionality.  My other hardware is abit bp6 dual
celeron mbd (has 2x agp), 2 - 433mhz celerons, 756mb dimm memory.

Thanks
