Can someone who has gotten their ATI mach64 card to work with Xfree86 3.1
please send me their XF86Config and Xconfig files?  I've been having a very
hard time getting this configuration set up.  

Thanks

Help!: ATI mach64 and XFree86 3.1

I am on the verge of buying a Gateway 2000 or other pentium.  Many
of these are shipped with ATI Mach 64 cards.

Anybody got any experience with this??

 
 
 

1. PCI-based ATI Mach64, does it work with XFree86 3.1.2d?


I managed to make the X window work (Sort of) with my PCI based ATI Mach64  
card, and the 3.1.2d distribution.

I say "sort of" because every time I try to load Xfilemanager (and several
other programs) I get a massage that says "segmentation fault". But the
Xserver loads and runs at 1024 x 768 and I get a visible desktop, even if
most of the utilities don't run.

I think there are still a few bugs in the system, but I am not currently sure
if they are in _my_ system or not.
