Checked the Archive ...no luck (ATI Rage Pro PCI [Ultimate Edition 2.7])

Postby Wolfie Lee » Fri Jun 07, 2013 9:22 am

OK, My sister has had to get an older rig (HP Pavillion a335e). I had an old 64M ATI Rage pro I popped into the rig, and it always drops to low graphics mode. I need to get EITHER the on board video (also 64M) running or (preferably) the Rage pci card.

ANY TAKERS?

The card had over-the-top linux support in its early days.
That was way back then....when ATI was ATI and AMD was ony AMD.
Im not sure about now....

AMD site now only supports windows for rage cards. You can try using an older distro--they have excellent rage support.

ALso play around with xorg.conf and increase your resolution there.
Code: Select all
sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Fiesty Fawn!?!?? (did my Ubu teeth - cutting on that one)....lol

Well...which Ultimate Edition do u think...?



...yeah, I've been to that link already and discovered only the windows drivers... :cry:

Actually already got the XP on the rig running the rage card just fine...

And I have no business fiddling around in X config. without a hand to hold.... :?
AWW... what the heck, I'll run command and see what takes place....

Well, The torrent is dead at 17.5 % DLed...

I can't do anything in terminal once the CL code you gave is ran...I just have ZERO X server "fiddling" expierience....I have a buddy that may be able to sit down at a TeamViewer session and show me how it's done...

Anyone else know how to change the resolution once it is here in terminal? :

Hi Wolfie Lee, First you need to create an Xorg.conf file then you can edit it to change resolution and other things ;and if you don't have another computer handy, you will have to print this because once get done killing the X-server you won't be able to switch back to tty7 and have a display .
1. press
ctrl alt f1
this will take you to tty1. Once there login just like you would normally eg:name , password.

2. Now to kill the X-server
Code: Select all
sudo service (gdm or kdm or lightdm or mdm) stop
depending on which one your are using if has unity then it is lightdm or does not have unity then it is gdm or if it has a newer mint then mdm or if it is kde(kubuntu) kdm

3. Now that X-server is dead you can type
Code: Select all
sudo X-configure
into tty1 this will create xorg.conf in your home folder or ,if you have driver issues, it will give some segfault or some error. Once created we need to copy it to /etc/X11 and we do this by
Code: Select all
 sudo cp xorg.conf.new  /etc/X11/xorg.conf
this will give the basics and now can edit as you like. Also use gedit instead of nano it is much easier for a newbee. Unless you don't have a display then you will have to use nano.
Computer: Antec NSK6500 case, MSI K9A2 Platinum, BE940 Phenom II,6gig ddr2 1066mhz ram, 4 sata hd (1 250gb seagate w/acronis for op sys bkp only and 1 TB wd green for movie bkp only and disconnected) , 3 1TB wd black sata II(no raid),Zalman 9700 air cooler, on board realsucks sound, Sony 42" hdtv connected to a 4670 ATI Radeon video card/ w Zalman 900 air cooler(very quiet) , 21.5 in Acer lcd monitor(cheap monitor finally died) , 2 ide dvd rw drives LG , 1 sata hp 340i bluray disk writer
OP sys : Win XP Pro, 1 Win7-64bit-ultimate and 1 custom precise 12.04 with all media codecs compiled by me and a bunch of media encoders.
