Description Johan Walles 1999-10-15 16:08:41 UTC
My graphics card (with 8Mb memory) was detected correctly
enough for the (graphical)installer to choose the correct X
server (the 3dlabs one), but the memory was detected to be
only 512kb.  Thus I could only choose between 800x600 and
640x480 in 16 or 256 colors.  Annoying.  Here's the output
from my (now correctly configured) X server:

XFree86 Version 3.3.5 / X Window System
(protocol Version 11, revision 0, vendor release 6300)
Release Date: August 23 1999
	If the server is older than 6-12 months, or if your card is
	than the above date, look for a newer version before
	problems.  (see http://www.XFree86.Org/FAQ)
