I just read your posting like two hours ago, actually I had the same
problem has you have. I am having the ATI Graphics Pro Turbo card too.
You are right, there isn't a particular driver for "Graphics Pro Turbo",
I also tried the other three, none of them work.
But, you know what, I finally tried linking to the XF86_SVGA instead of
XF86_Mach64 and it works fine. I just read it somewhere that this SVGA
will work for all the ATI card, except the trade off is that you don't
get a lot of control over it. Most of the commands in the config file
will have no effect at all, ex. mode, virtual etc.
Anyway, I am not very sure when they are going to have a driver for
this particular card, a guy from the newsgroup suggested the 3.1.2E
(latest BETA version) to me, I haven't really tried that out but it is
probably another alternative for you. Last but not least, if it is
absolutely nessary for you, change your video card to fit one of the
other three models .
