Xconfigurator not picking up non-integrated video card

Xconfigurator not picking up non-integrated video card

Post by Craig Jone » Mon, 06 May 2002 07:24:14


Recenlty bought a PC in which the video card is integrated in the
motherboard.  I have been finding that it was not good (lots of flicker
etc).  So I bought a ATI Radeon 7000 (PCI card), installed it and
changed the BIOS so that the PCI video card was selected.

I rebooted and things came up, but when I run Xconfigurator it still
seems to find the integrated video card and I can't seem to get it to
recognize the PCI video card.

I have also tried the "Xconfigurator --card" but that does not seem to
work either.

I would appreciate any and all help and suggestions!  I am running
Redhat 7.1.



1. Integrated video plus a video card


I am considering buying a computer and then adding a good video card to it.
So here's my question: If a system comes with chep integrated video with
shared memory, and we decide to add a good video card to it, would linux
have any problems distinguishing the two, or is it trivial to set up the
new card correctly?
