XFree86 and ATI Mach64 PCI

XFree86 and ATI Mach64 PCI

Hi,

I have a PCI ATI Mach64 (2Mb VRAM) and I am having no luck getting XFree86
to work with the XF86_Mach64 driver.  I cannot even describe what it is I
am seeing when I startup the X server.  It's just a black & white screen of
garbage.  I've tried the XF86_SVGA driver and that one works fine ... for
the standard SVGA settings.  I cannot use any setting that requires more
than 1Mb of video memory (as the SVGA driver says) without the display
going wacky.

Is anybody out there using the XF86_Mach64 driver with a PCI ATI Mach64?  I
am using the version of XFree86 that comes with FreeBSD 2.0.5 (I don't know
the exact version at the moment).  Here are a few more of my system specs
just in case ...

P166, 32Mb RAM, SB16-SCSI2 (ISA), SCSI Plextor 4x, SCSI Sony 4x, 2 540Mb
IDE Maxtor, 2.1Gb IDE Western Digital, NEC Multisync XV17+, FreeBSD 2.0.5.

Here are the relevant sections of my XF86Config file ...

Grab XFree86 3.1.2G.  That was the only saviour for me to get my
Grafix Xpression (ATI 2meg PCI) card to work happily.  [plus that version
of xfree86 has a much nicer config program. :)]

You should install XFree86 3.1.  Its Mono, VGA16 and SVGA servers include
(unaccelerated) support for Mach64's.  For an accelerated server, you'll
have to wait until XFree86 >=3.2.
