Re: xp1000 problems with upgrade to 2.4.18-generic
Do a "modprobe -l" as root to see what modules are available, then
"modprobe <modulename>" to insert it. Then add that module name to the
file /etc/modules if you want it to get inserted on boot automatically.
The stock video card that came with the XP1000 might be
unsupported - it depends. There were a couple of different cards that came
with that machine, depending on configuration. I had to replace mine. I
just put in a Matrox Millennium MGA and things work perfectly. To
re-setup the X server, do "dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86"
