okay, right. forgot. sorry.
ii libgtk2.0-0 2.4.3-1
ii libgtk2.0-comm 2.4.3-1
ii libgtk2.0-dev 2.4.3-1
ii xserver-xfree8 4.1.0-16woody3
not sure about the gnome libraries -- `dpkg --get-selections | grep
gnome` turns up a lot of libraries, ad i'm not sure which are
my video card:
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Rage 128 Pro TF (prog-if 00 [VGA])
Subsystem: ATI Technologies Inc: Unknown device 0408
Flags: stepping, 66Mhz, medium devsel, IRQ 16
Memory at f8000000 (32-bit, prefetchable) [size=64M]
I/O ports at ec00 [size=256]
Memory at ff9fc000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
Expansion ROM at 80000000 [disabled] [size=128K]
Capabilities: <available only to root>
and i'm using the r128 driver.
Not sure if this is relevant, but in order to get this to work at all,
i have to add the line 'Chipset "ATI Rage 128 RF (AGP)"' to my Device
section for the montior in my /etc/X11/XF86Config-4. without that
line, it won't work, and i have to add it every time i use
dpkg-reconfigure on the xserver-xfree86 package. (there's probably
some way to put that line (and just that line) outside the section
handled by debconf, but i don't know how.)
