AMD 64, Via chip MB, with Nvidia 7600gs AGP, on Sabayon No Good!? What's my problem? I'm expecting the Sabayon 3.0 DVD in the mail anyday and I was going to wipe some other distros and make it my main installation.
Been attempting to get this new GPU to install or boot Live with XGL! It will boot with Xgl on the RR4 Mini Live, but not the new Sabayon, nor the Full RR4 XGL! It will boot on the new Sabayon Mini Live w/o XGL! Very frustrating and this is not the only installs on a machine where this same scenario is happening. Have a friend who's top of the line Intel Gateway is pulling the same thing with an ATI card. Is this an Xgl issue? Or is Linux the problem? This card does install into my neighbors computer and run winblows.
Not your problem, but maybe it will help in a solution that it will not install the driver in SuSE either. Well it installs it, but when I run sax2 to activate it, it reverts to Vesa Frame Buffer there. Other distros boot, but still other won't boot at all with this AGP card in even when attempting a fresh install.
So any help or ideas Chris would be appreciated. I do know that this card was made by nVidia by taking the PCIe slot card and putting it on an AGP slot card base to fill a gap in the market and I've already attempted to mess with some settings with nvAGP in options. So still confused and perplexed on this one!
