I am trying to get XFree86 running on an AlphaStation 500, but am having
problems.  I think my /etc/XF86Config file is correct.  Everything that
I'm using is from the precompiled 5-8-99 distribution.  Here is what it
says about the TGA:

vga0 at pci0 dev 12 function 0: Digital Equipment TGA2 (rev. 0x22)

Here is what XalphaNetBSD :0 produces:

unable to get frame buffer info:  Inappropriate ioctl for device

Fatal server error:
no screens found

Am I missing something?
