Dear WLUG Members,
Below is a question that I posted on Ask Ubuntu 8 days ago.
I have received no replies, so I am now asking whether any of you might
be able to help.
BTW, in addition to the Diamond Stealth card, I also have a PCI Mach64
VGA card made by ATI and a PCI VGA card made by STB Systems. The STB one
has a big chip made by S3 and a PROM (I think) labeled "NITRO 3D/GX EDO
1.0". Those have essentially the same problem.
I have added to my system a very old Diamond Stealth PCI VGA video card.
That card can talk to the BIOS and display correctly on a VGA monitor
(provided that I tell the BIOS that my primary graphics card is PCI-E
not PCI), but it does not work in Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. I think I need a
generic VGA driver. Here is some info from lshw:
*-display UNCLAIMED description: VGA compatible controller
product: 2000PV [Stingray]
vendor: ARK Logic Inc
physical id: 5
bus info: pci@0000:03:05.0
width: 32 bits
resources: memory:fdc00000-fdffffff memory:febf0000-febfffff
Also, here is what happens when I try to install fglrx:
sudo apt-get install fglrx
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package fglrx
I'd appreciate any help or suggestions.
(P.S. I think I have to set the BIOS to PCI-E because when I sent it to
PCI it finds the built-in video port on my AMD CPU.)
