I'm experiencing the same problem on my PowerCenter 132 with my ATI VR-Pro.
I have a feeling that there is a bug in the Rage-Pro support.
I've also had trouble with the acceleration causing garbage on the screen
in 16 bit mode when I drag windows.
It's entirely possible that we don't have the memory layout quite correct
or something. To add insult to injury I also have an Adaptec Ultra SCSI PCI
card and a 4 Gig drive that Linux is booting off of. I've had some random
files show up like "?:" including the quote characters. Maybe there are
deeper PCI problems or is this just a bug in the Adaptec driver? (With a
the R5 2.2.6 kernel and a 2.3.6 custom compile).
I've been meaning to look into the code but I haven't had the time. Anybody
have some clues? My card *used* to work under 2.1.24 when I added the
support to the original driver ;-)
