on this link to XFree86.org there only is a notice for RIVA 128, that one should
change the interrupt settings in the BIOS or change the PCI slots. Now there are
- I have only one PCI card, an Adaptec SCSI host adapter, so I can
set the other PCI slots on NA, but I cannot change the interrupt for
the host adapter, because otherwise the Windows NT and Windows 95 - OS
will not start.
- I cannot find out, where is the conflict between the card and any other device
(In both Windows OS all works fine).
- In the boot-protocol I noticed three warnings about unknown PCI-devices.
I don't know, if thats the reason for the conflict.
- Is it really a BIOS problem, when any operating system works fine except of
Linux with X11 and I have an AGP card and no PCI card?
Do you have any idea? Thank you.
