I am purchasing a new PC and I am hoping to Run Linux with
XFree on it.
I have looked at the FAQs to try and determine if my video card will
be compatible. I had heard to stay away from Diamond cards becasue
there are come problems with them.
Well, I could not find video cards listed in the FAQ hardware howto that
I found. This seemd very odd to me.
Well, I am looking at two different systems.
Using two different cards.
1. One uses the ATI Graphics Ultra Pro
which is based on the mach32 chip
2. The other uses a card based on the Tseng 4000/W32i chip.
I am probably getting the second of these.
Has anybody got Linux and Xfree working with either of these cards
or know where I can find this information in the FAQ's?
Also, in general, do I need to worry about checking every component
of my system for compatibility? Do most components work with
linux and Xfree?
Thanks for the info.
