hello again, everyone. I have a connundrum for you:
I kept the PCI video card from my parted out tower I was using as a server (which I never got to work after the 3rd motherboard blew, and I decided to give up on). it is a ATI Mac64 GX.
I was wondering if I could get it working with my B&W G3, so I can have 2 monitors on this thing. so, I move my USB 2.0 card down a slot, and insert the Mach64 right under the ATI Rage 128 (with DVD decoder). the Rage is istting in the 66mhz slot, and the mach64 in a 33mhz slot. I hooked my one monitor up to the mach64, and I get nothing on the screen. however, I get instant video when it is hooked up to the Rage.
what is going on? do I need to flash the firmware on the mach64? if so, where can I get the firmare file and utility? I looked on ATI's site, and all I see are drivers for the mach64 under windows.
note: when I did have Ubuntu 5.10 on here (just as a temp. OS), the Ubuntu device manager saw the ATI mach64 GX, but I couldnt get any video on it.
