Looking for video module intel_agp...
« on: May 27, 2011, 10:07:50 AM »
Hi, hi.

Some older hardware here (Dell Latitude c400, circa 2002) which only works with the Xvesa 800x600x16.  When loading the Xorg extensions, xstart fails with the error indicating "no monitors found". 

I've tried with some xorg.conf file I know to work, but same error.  According to 'lsmod', there's no video module for the laptop loaded.  'intel_agp' is needed but the extension 'graphics-2.6.33.3-tinycore.tcz' prevents the system from loading, and '915resolution.tcz' didn't seem to do much either....

TIA, Alex

You perhaps need something like this:
Code: [Select]
Section "Device"
Identifier  "Card0"
Driver      "intel"
VendorName  "Intel Corporation"
BoardName   "Integrated Graphics Chipset: Intel(R) 945GM"
BusID       "PCI:0:2:0"
Option "Monitor-LVDS1" "LCD"
Option "Monitor-VGA1" "VGA"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device     "Card0"
Monitor    "LCD"
SubSection "Display"
Depth     24
Modes     "1280x800"
EndSubSection
EndSection
You can pick up the name of your lcd sceen from /var/log/Xorg.0.log

This works with Xvesa, not with Xorg - there are a bunch of posts in these forums about how to use it.
