Re: [linrad] SVGALIB 1.9.18 Compiled but does not start
how could I forget that ... SVGALIB 1.9.18 running now !!!!
- finds my RAGE ATI card, but offers NO setting. VESA does not work at all.
But the system does not crash anymore.
This is still SuSE 8.2. I will install SuSE 9.1 next week. Until then I will
stop my activities here.
