I loaded the new Red Hat and was pleased to see that software
loaded that *might* work with my digital camera and another that's
supposed to work with my palm pilot.
But, after telling it to give me a 1024X768 X window it
up-chucked and gave me an unstable 800X600 on my nice new 17 inch active
matrix flat screen monitor! Odd, since Red Hat 7.2 on the same machine
works just fine.
At first thought Xconfigurator was bad, but looked at the
Xserver log file from /var/log/ and saw that the module for my video
card was not loading. It's a module called tdfxfb.o and I was surprised
to see it was present on version 7.3 but not working.
I tried #modprobe tdfx and got "module not found". Tried it on
this 7.2 and it worked fine.
If your using a voodoo video card don't try Red Hat 7.3 cause it
will not work.
