I just arrived in the Newsgroup today and I don't know anything about Linux
graphic X drivers.
My problem is :
I would to install Linux on my PC computer. My video card is a Diamond VIPER
P9000 VLB (VESA) and I don't know if it's possible to find a Linux X graphic
driver for it (on the net).
In fact, I would like to be sure before buying a CD-ROM, a new hard-disk and
Last year, I asked the same question but there was nothing done at this moment.
The only positive answer I had was to configure the card to display pictures in
standard VGA mode (640x480 and only 16 colors but Diamond VIPER can do
1280x1024 256 colors).
Perhaps, Linux supports it now ???
Or perhaps, anyone developped a driver for the VIPER ???
If someone could helped me, he would be welcomed.
Thank you in advance.
