PBXGA-AA ZLXp-E1 Graphics?

» close window

The Question is:

I am trying to configure an X windows application and need to know the chipset
 and amount of video memory that my video card uses. The video card is the DEC
 PBXGA-AA, ZLXp-E1, aka 21030.

The Answer is :

  The (old) ZLXp-E1/E2/E3 PCI Graphics Options - Owner's Guide part
  number is EK-T2424-OG.  This module is a color 3D, eight-plane
  accelerator, PCI card with 4MB of backing store.
  Coding to a particular controller is not generally recommended, it is
  best to dynamically query the X Windows server for necessary details.
  Typical X Windows applications will do this, and dynamically adjust
  to the current graphics controller.
  As for obtaining the usual X Windows display information:
    $ xdpyinfo
  For switch settings, please see (6965).
