Getting an XGI Volari Z7 working with xorg?

view full story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – (yes, I am cross-posting this from the gentoo forums. so sue me) I've begun putting together a new machine to replace my 7-year-old main rig. So far I've got the motherboard (a Tyan S4985), CPUs, RAM and power supply. The rig is up and running, and seems to perform quite a bit better than the old box as far as compile times are concerned. Until I can get a decent video card, I am going to use the motherboard's integrated video - an XGI Volari Z7. I have tried a couple of different drivers and haven't yet gotten adequate results. sis: fails to detect the card Code: [ 79888.486] (--) PCI:* (HowTos)
