Netvista 6648 and NVIDIA graphics / disable onboard video?

2008-04-16, 3:22 AM

I recently acquired a Netvista 6648 PIII machine, which I intended to put to use as a MythTV frontend. The system is equipped with a PCI riser. To provide TV-Out functionality, I purchased a simple PCI (not PCI-e) NVIDIA card. I have a similar model in another frontend of mine, which has been working great for some time at this point.

Unfortunately, the machine seems to not want to allow the graphics card to be the default output device. In the BIOS, there is an option, which is selected, to 'prefer PCI.' However, the VGA-out of the onboard Intel chipset is never disabled and/or the PCI graphics card is never enabled.

lspci reports a video device plugged into the bus -- any thoughts?
