Thanks. X works with the tga driver, but only in 8 bit mode (but that's not a problem).

I also saw that many Gentoo packages are not *supported* for Alpha, but they build. Is there some place where I can tell when I manage to compile a package and test it ? Maybe in this list ?

Best wishes, Fabien

Yes it is. Has been for quite a while. At least it is in other distros
like Red Hat and Debian and the support was submitted back to the Xfree
maintainers (thanks to Jay Estabrook).

Matrox Millenium[II], Permedia 2 based boards and ATI Radeon 7500 all
work well and are supported as well. But, you should be able to get your
TGA2 going.
