Realize that the PCI vendor/device IDs need added to the list before they will be recognized, without that the computer doesn't know to try the Radeon driver on any card. That's my current problem with my A1, I need to swap in an older card in the list to install OS4, start over, edit the list to add my X1950, and then try that card again. Right now all I get is a message that no known graphics card was found to run an OS4 driver, but I do see that printed on the screen connected to the X1950. :) Ugh, if only I had time to fiddle with that stuff.


Not having the vendor/device ID in the list could actually help someone working on a driver, or a new graphics system (which is on the card). That way they're not competing with the existing drivers for access to the card. A test scaffold could be built allowing the driver (or parts of it) to be tested without swapping hardware, and with the other graphics card still available to look at debug info and edit code.
