What

A Sort of a tree made of VESA mount arms with screens on it.

Why

Art.

Who

User:Sci and User:JasperWallace and you as well!

Status

Work in progresss, more screens and the means to drive them needed.

Looking on ebay the NVS280 is one choice of PCI card, the NVS400 gives 4 outputs and may be more cost effective. Splitter cables are an issue tho (these are DMS-59 splitters, the connector on the card is NOY DVI tho it looks a lot like it) :/

The PC is a bit dodgy, I think the ram is not quite right for it.


Sci's video cards

2 x Appian Jeronimo J2/N - These are 2 Cirrus Logic chips on one card but do NOT have a PCI bridge, both cirrusfb and X crash when trying to use them, it might be something simple in the init code, but life's too short.

2 x MGA somethings - X crashes with them, not very good anyway

1 x Appian Jeronimo something else - These have 2 x Permedia pm2 chips with a PCI bridge, appear to be usable with fiddling?

1 x ATI something - Mach64 driver/card, works a bit, then crashes X...
