I have an embedded computer.(advantech pc5820 series). I have an external HD connected to it. I installed Mandrake 8.0 on it.
The graphic card chipset used on this machine is a NS CX 5530 1-4MB UMA share memory. and Mandrake doesn’t list the NS geode as compatible on their website
so i could not choose a graphic card during the installation. The support engineers of Advantech sent me a XFree86 driver for their card.
I have a great problem with the documentation that comes with the driver:
in the release.txt which comes with the driver, it tells to install Xfree86 server. i downloaded the binaries of 4.0.1 and installed them.
in section 2 of release.txt, it tells to build the X11. (does it mean to install?????)
then it talks about 2 copy jobs. both of them replaces the same file;/etc/X11/XFree86Config then what is the need for the first copy?
when it comes to install (section 4), it talks about crlf which does not mean anything to me.
also it again talks about inflating v4.0.1 bz files; i have already installed xserver so what does it talk about?
it talks about xc tree? does it come with the xserver sources or with the driver sent to me? if the first one, i installed using the binaries?
should i reinstall using sources? If second, why does it talk about an installation? i have not installed the driver yet.
then for non-stb (i think it is my case), it talks about 2 copy jobs which are to directories that do not exist. should i create them?
it talks about durango directory which does not exist. there is a file durango.c in gfx directory. and also there are more than one gfx directory.
I am at this stage. i could not continue, because i am really confused.:(((
I send this release.txt with this mail.
I will appreciate your comments. How can i install this driver?
thanks in advance.
