Not sure how on-topic it is for this list, but seeing as I'm planning to set
up gnome+orca, I figure it can't hurt.

Subject: [gentoo-user] Best way to determine what video card I have?

Hello all,
First off I'll admit to not knowing as much as I should about my system, and
am hoping to correct that as I go (that's part of the reason I'm actually
doing it this way). I'm trying to set up X on my system, and am not entirely
sure which video card I have. I've already checked out lspci and lsmod, but
nothing that appears, at least to me, to be specific to my video card jumps
out at me. I accept that it may not have been compiled into the kernel,
which is actually a lot of why I'm posting here. If anyone can lend a hand
in this general area, that'd be greatly appreciated. I did do some looking
on google, but didn't find a whole lot beyond folks just guessing and hoping
they got it right. Sorry if this comes off as far too newbie-ish for this
list, but I am quite new to this aspect of linux. Again, thank you in
advance for any help you can provide.
