Got my new machine, an athlon 950 (with asus a7v
motherboard). Works nicefully :) I got a few minor problems
with it though, installing a debian (woody) system on it :
- The two ATA/100 channels were not recognized by any of the
debian rescue discs. So linux would not see my hard drive at
all... for now I just plugged it on one of the ATA/66
channels, I'll try to see if linux can support the ATA/100
thing when I have everything else working. The controller is
a promise PDC20265.
- I cant get XFree4 to work yet :( I dont know if this is
because I have a matrox G450, or if it is because of debian.
The best results I got till now is to get a garbled screen
(the synchro frequencies are apparently very wrong) and have
the X server quit, while leaving the screen garbled.
Ctrl-alt-del from the keyboard still works. Huh :-/
If anyone else has an a7v or a g450, I'd love to know how to
make it work :)
On the mpeg2dec side, I implemented support for field
pictures, so now I want to do some video output lib changes
and then releases 0.2.0. The libvo changes are a major
subject of dispute on the livid lists, which is just not fun
for anyone involved :-/
