Detecting ATI Radeon 7500 (PCI version)

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


I am running RedHat 7.2 and am trying to get a Radeon 7500 (the PCI version, 
not AGP) to work with X. I have installed version 4.2.0 of XFree86.

The specs of my machine are (sorry if too much info):

2 x PIII
GIGABYTE GA-6VTXDR-C Mainboard - This thing does not have an AGP slot hance 
the Radeon PCI card. However, it does have an onboard AGP ATI Rage XL 2X.
64Mb PCI Radeon 7500.
Sony G420.

I can actually get X up and running, however it only detects the onboard AGP 
chip, and doesn't look very good.

My question is, how can I get X to detect and utilise the PCI card?
Also, which X server do I need for this card? I have loaded the Mach 64, 
however I have a feeling this is not correct.

If anyone has a similar setup I would appreciate a copy of your config file.

I am really unsure about the whole process involved in setting this up, so 
any basic information would be appreciated.
