I have AS1200 AS4100 DS10 and DS20, and want to use several of them as X terminal. Does any one have in head, or on web site a list of compatible PCI video cards, and possibly X server (version name and number) ?

I would need really at least 1027*768, possibly 1280*1024 resolution. Those machine only have PCI and ISA ... no AGP.

on AS4100:
I have tried Matrox Millenium and some S3 ... Matrox had garbage (when moving mouse, pixels were not always refreshed to the "background"). I also would love at least FrameBuffer on other machines. I have also see, that S3 cards on this machine do not like AT ALL being several on the same bus.

I d love using xinerama, but both Xfree and Xorg have a bug that prevents scanning multiple PCI bus; it scans only the first one !

On my Alpha PWS 500a, I'm using a Matrox G450 PCI which works perfectly... The PWS doesn't have AGP either...
