The problem first started when I couldn't get xwindows to work (even
in monochrome or VGA). I really looked hard for the source of the
problem and found that during the auto probing of pci devices linux
couldn't find my video card. The exact statement was:
Probing pci hardware
Error : Unknown pci device. - please read /include/linux/pci.h
Well I looked at the file and it didn't really tell me anything. I
had my video card in there (which is an ATI mach 64) in the statement:
define PCI_DEVICE_ID_ATI_M64 0x??some number??
How can I tell Linux that I have this video card. My friend has the
exact same video card but his finds it fine. X windows on his system
is awesome. I helped him set it up so my xf86config is almost
identical to his except for the monitor refresh rates. Someboby
please tell me why this is happening. I will be very grateful.
