Linuxbios is supposed to support "Trident
Cyberblade 3d" natively
and I have a Cyberblade/i1 rev 6a in my chipset...
Please don't tell me that I've spend time
making it work, though
it isn't really, while there is a native support ?!?
I have no idea whether the Cyberblade i1 and 3d are the same. If your
device has the following PCI id it is the same:
.vendor = 0x1023,
.device = 0x9880,
I've check my device out it is :
1023 : 8500

this is a needed step, first it helps me understand in the whole,

But I write it in french since i'll prepare a 'conference' at
my university based upon it: hey, my intented audience is frenchy.
Moreover, i've led it as a study of project, well sure that's no
a burden it but for example it's a bit offside the way you
present the topic in your doc.
But it is detailled, stuffed with example and very newbie friendly,
at least I could swear :) Though it need some reform to fit your
