driver for AMD/ATI Rage XL?

Postby stroudmw » 2017-09-05 13:22

I'd like to know if I am using the correct video driver. I'm running Debian 9 32 bit. I have no idea if a driver for this old thing even exists! If I'm not,it's not the end of the world as all I do is email, internet and the odd Libreoffice doc, and everything appears to be ok. I'm just curious (and I might learn something). Thanks!

That's what you should be seeing, so you're good.

Thank you! But, how can you tell? I might do a re-install one day and I don't want to have to ask again...
