I have tried some distributions, no way to get pcie x1900 to work with linux
What problems did you have, eg. not booting at all, freezing as soon as drm loads, freezing as soon as X starts? Most part of the problem is which version of the kernel and mesa the distro does run.
On the PCIe G5 (11,2) I had problems with kernel versions 4.10.x - 4.17.x. Since 4.18.x (or on 4.9.x) the PCIe Radeon HD 5450 and the Geforce 6600 run just fine in my G5 11,2.[ Editiert durch ernsteiswuerfel 16.12.2018 - 15:57 ]
