Re: the video card between a rock and hard place...[SEC=UNCLASSIFIED]

here's a question, I don't know how easy it will be to answer but here goes,

does anyone know of a video card that uses a PCI ex slot that would be compatible with XF86?
Do you mean PCI Express?

I think this illustrates my problem as XF 86 hasn't been updated since 2003 ( by my limited research ) and the PCI ex slot wasn't invented until 2004. So my card for PCI ex will therefore not have much support
from XF86.
I'm using one right now (I'm almost sure this card is PCI Express x16).
I use XFree from NetBSD4, earlier it worked with NetBSD3 (or 3.1
I don't remember).

Relevant parts od dmesg:
