Server is very stable you need Options "ShadowFB" in driver section of
XF86Config file for all supported cards.. it looks like all Matrox pci
cards will just *work* with 'mga' driver.
see : for supported
Cards i tried that do NOT work:
ati -Radeon-7000, server indicates.. not correctly initialized by bios.
nv - GeForce2, not seen as vga card by SRM. No graphics.
3D Labs Oxygen VX1 -glintR3 not supported by XFree86-4.2.1 Suported in
Linux with fbdriver.
ps.. yes 'ogle' plays <Monsters Inc> real fine with an Matorx G400 card.
