Hello. I am trying to install v 5.2 on my new computer. I have done succesful installations on my old computer where everything worked perfect. My problem now is that I canīt find my graphic card when I am conf Xfree86. I have a Asus (ATI) Radeon 9200 SE. When I try to start X it doesnīt work, even if I try vga generic and other settings. Is it so bad that I have to buy a new card or is there other sollutions?? I have looked at Xfree86.org driver section and my card isnīt mentioned even in their latest release.
Hope that someone has an answer that will be cheaper than buying a new card.
Many thanks Nicolas

Bellow it's my X config; I'm using a Radeon 9000. The thing you are after is: Driver "ati" in the Device section; or radeon might work.

Thank u. I hope thatīs it but I am not sure because of the Xfree86 man Drivers:


Supported Hardware <cid:[EMAIL PROTECTED]>


The *radeon* driver supports PCI and AGP video cards based on the following ATI chips

*R100*
Radeon 7200 *RV100*
Radeon 7000(VE), M6 *RV200*
Radeon 7500, M7 *R200*
Radeon 8500, 9100, FireGL 8800/8700 *RV250*
Radeon 9000, M9 *R300*
Radeon 9700PRO/9700/9500PRO/9500, FireGL X1/Z1



Unfortunately it doesnīt mention 9200........ Is there a list of cards that FreeBSD supports???? I canīt find it in the hardware support pages.

Thanks again!!
