  1. Where can I download graphic card driver for Card ATI ES1000 515E, Monitor HP L1740 for IBM System x3200 M2 running linux SLE?
    I am asking this as I am not able to increase my screen resolution beyond 1024x768.

    I researched online and the max resolution the card can get is 1280x1024 but only in 16bit color. That graphics card is so old I cannot find a driver for it.

    Thanks JC713 for the reply and effort.
    Might be the because of the old card we are not getting the driver for it.

    Glad to help. But yeah, that is a very old graphics card. I dont even think there are legacy drivers for it haha.

    I agree as their capabilities. ATi driver support in linux in general isn't great and as to the proprietary binaries they seem to drop the older chips far too soon.

    Thanks all for the help.
    But my system is of IBM and so I wonder if those dell based drivers will really help.
