My MB is an Asus P2B-D.
My card is a Millennium II AGP with 8 meg. (Not the G200 or G100 etc.)
I understand why SuperProbe does not work. There is a simple VGA
chipset on Matrox cards in addition to the mga chipset.
I have tried the SuSE drivers and had no better results. According
to what I've read the SVGA server should support my card accellerated
When I do the startx I get a socket connect error of 111.
Any ideas anybody? PLEASE!!!
