I've been using a rather old Creative Labs card on my OpenLinux/RedHat 6.0
box but I'm tired of having to run graphics programs in 640x480 screens to
prevent system lockups and crashes. I'm looking for a new video card and
would like to know which, if any, new cards on the market work really well
with OpenLinux 2.2 and RedHat 6.0.
And how do you go about swapping video cards in Linux? Do you change the
drivers first then power down, install the new card, and then start the
computer again? Or should I install some sort of generic video display
driver (VGA), put in the new card then install the new drivers? I've not
quite figured this part out yet with Linux.
