: I have both Viper330 (Riva128) and Viper550 (RivaTNT)
: working very well under linux.
: The TNT server is available on www.planetriva.com.
It seems everybody that has responded is using Riva 128 cards by
manufacturers who stayed fairly close to the Nvidia design spec. I have
heard that Canopus actually has modified the design of their boards to an
extent that people couldn't use the alpha openGL drivers for the Wintel
platform released by Nvidia. Canopus had to do this.
Can anyone confirm or deny this at least in regards to the Wintel platform?
If this is true, there MAY(?) be some issues with using the SVGA server from
Xfree (have heard that SuSe has one, or they shared the driver design with
them). May have to ask Canopus about this as I don't see too many people
claiming use of them.
Also, as a last question, does the newest SVGA server utilize acceleration
on (generic) Riva 128 cards?
Thank you to all the responses I have received, they have really help to shed
light on the subject.
