I'll be working with a HP Vectra XU 90 Mhz Pentium system with an
installed Matrox MGA PCI /2+ video card. I would like to install
NEXTSTEP as the OS of choice (my choice, heh heh).
- the onboard SCSI is supported
- the onboard ethernet is supported
- the onboard (low-end) video chipset is supported
The bad news appears to be that the standard video upgrade for
this system (according to the HP manual), the Matrox MGA PCI /2+
card does not appear to have a driver. Perhaps is uses a chipset
that is supported by one of the more generic video drivers?
One strange thing is that when I unplugged the video card,
the system refuses to boot using the builtin video. The
manual doesn't seem to indicate any switch settings for
enabling/disabling the builtin video...
