too teeid up to plauy withgnumake. I'll wait till xfree4.0 come alomng a
bit. Then I will take the card off the shelf anfd dust it off and chuck it
in one of the other low end machine that handle the small stuff and see if
it will work. Other that thet , its been a lost coause for me. My best move
was replacing it with a diamond v550 card. worked right out the box. ran
xf86config and bingo. no playing around.
