RIVA 128 and SVGATextMode

Post by J.L. » Thu, 02 Apr 1998 04:00:00

Is it possible to setup SVGATextMode with the RIVA 128
(STB Velocity) card?

I have XFree86 working just fine, but I really want
SVGATextMode as well.  
I'd settle for just one mode (e.g., 132x43x9)
but I'd *really* like to be able to have all
the modes I had with my S3V.

1. STB Velocity 128 (nVidia Riva 128) support

Does anyone know if the STB Velocity 128 (nVidia Riva 128) supported
under Linux or where I may be able to find register level tech docs to
write the driver?  nVidia, the company the makes the chipset and STB
refuse both refuse by request for the information.

I currently have Win95 and WinNT on my PII system and would like to give
Linux and the BeOS(www.be.com) a try.  What does it mean in Linux for a
card to be unsupported?  For example, in 95 & NT, if you don't have the
driver installed, you usually still get 640x480 16 colors and in the
BeOS, you get nothing(just a blank screen).
