I have a VideoLogic Grafixstar Apocalypse 5D Power VR Graphic Card. It's not supported in Linux Suse 6.0. Does someone have a packet that upgrades Linux setup so that it  recognizes this or any other solution.
Thanks.

Check out for the latest XFree86 version at www.xfree86.org and watch for the list of supported adapters. If it's there, upgrade your XFree86.

installation is basicly


tar -xvf tgz files

xf86config
It configures X server..

Be sure that you set Right Vertical
