[SOLVED] Xorg xserver fatal error.

<< < (2/2)

curaga:
That would be no better than Xvesa in his case, as the bios only allocated ~750kb of video ram. Would force him to 640x480 still.

Perhaps a sample vesa config file could be included. To teh todo list!

^thehatsrule^:
I was thinking more on terms of a script to edit something after a X -configure so that the other devices would be configured.

I am already using graphics-2.6.26.tcem, even then getting that error in Xorg.0.log.

Yes. vesa driver on Xorg provides 640x480 only, however, Xvesa is working with -swaprgb option on 1024x768x32.

Thanks everybody. But I would like to use intel driver.

I have tried this machine on Ubuntu Intrepid and Fedora 10 Live CD both of which have Xorg 7.4 and the intel driver works.

Ubuntu uses xserver 1.5.2 and Fedora uses 1.5.3 and you are using 1.5.1. Could it make any difference with the driver?

I have also tried Ubuntu Intrepid and Fedora 10 on another machine with an older intel card. On Ubuntu I had to remove compiz to make it work. On Fedora intel driver does not work at all on this machine and I had to use vesa.

I think Xorg 7.4 is still in heavy development.

On my machine you have to help things along like this:
--- Code: ---$ sudo modprobe agpgart
$ sudo modprobe intel-agp
$ sudo modprobe drm
$ startx
--- End code ---
