a friend of mine just bought a PC planning to install und use Linux/X11
pre*ly. He looked into the Hardware-HOWTO and chose components
memntioned there, but in the final installation, there were some hardware
problems with used graphics card (don't know which one).
The computer shop offered him as replacement a
Spea V7 Mirage P64 VLB card with a S3 Vision 864 processor
(hope that's correct, he told me on the phone)
now he's unsure, if he can run Linux/X11 with this set. As he has no
net-access in any way, the task fell on me to check this out. I've
looked through the Hardware-HOWTO and through this newsgroup but
couldn't find any information for this piece of hardware (maybe I just
didn't see it, but that's life)
Any information or pointers to such welcome. PLEASE use email, as I'm
not usually reading this group.
Thanks in advance -
