I can't say that I see any of that.

I'm using a G450 (AGP) on a KT400 chipset, XP-2600 cpu.

This is my kernel boot line:

kernel /boot/vmlinuz-260test1ac2 root=/dev/hda1 video=matroxfb:xres:1600,yres:1280,depth:16,pixclock:4116,left:304,right:64,upper:46,lower:1,hslen:192,vslen:3,fv:85 hdb=scsi apm=power-off ide0=ata66

Consoles, X, Xv for watching videos in X - it all works fine.



This works for me.

Kind regards,

actual productive work and their chronic failure to manage (see also suit).
Spoken derisively, as in "Management decided that ...". 2. Mythically, a
vast bureaucracy responsible for all the world's minor irritations.
Hackers' satirical public notices are often signed `The Mgt'; this derives
from the "Illuminatus" novels (see the Bibliography in Appendix C).
