Can A6150A graphics be installed in an A500 server?

Can this be done and how? I have tried and nothing comes up on my monitor. I have to use the terminal.

Hi,

A6150A Graphics card is supported only on L-class Servers (RP54XX).

I see that the A6150B graphics is supported on the rp2470 and rp2430 (takes 2 PCI slots). The rp24x0 is the updated version and renamed version of the A500. Did you check to see that the driver is loaded in the kernel? You will never see any boot information come out on this card even on the L-class or rp54x0 server, as it only works once CDE is started. Did you let the system fully boot, and was CDE running.

Going back to the 6/2001 Config Guide, I see that the A6150A is supported in the A500 with HP-UX 11.0, but it must be installed in slot 1. The USB card can be installed in any slot. Remember there is no console functionality, just X-windows (CDE).
