I seem to remember fitting a Radeon 9200 PCI Gfx card in my PowerMac G5 to check if it would be useful, and it did at least work, though it obviously wasn't in the AGP slot, so a lot slower, but useful if you've nothing else. That worked for MorphOS as well as for Mac OS X I seem to remember, but as I said, it wouldn't be my first choice anyway.
I later got a Radeon 9600 PowerMac G5 Mac Apple standard 128MB Gfx card for £1 which is in my system now, and is more straightforward to use.Quote:
Andreas Wolf: With MorphOS and Linux this can be circumvented by using an AtomBIOS-based Radeon (R500+) card.
Which specific cards are these - specifically by model number, if you know?
(haha/huhu - Andreas NOT know something about what he quoted?!)Quote:
Jim: Alternately an X1950Pro or X1600 AGP PC video card could be used
They still seem to sell for quite a lot, and they don't seem to be that easy to source, or are they?
