Help needed with tibook 550 / Radeon mobility card / Pcmcia
Yesterday I decided to treat myself to a tibook after suffering an old
800x600 laptop for far too long.
I've made my way through a debian woody netinst install and upgraded
to unstable, however Im left with a number of issues.
Im using a 2.4.18 kernel from here  . It seems to support most
stuff and though pcmcia ( yenta ) appears to come up, orinoco_cs barfs
with a 'get_next_truple' error when I insert my wavelan card.
Can anyone recommend a better kernel ( src is fine ) or
/defualt/pcmcia | config.opts additions that should help this.
X ( from debian unstable ) runs at 1024x768 using the fbdev driver on
top of the radeonfb framebuffer. However X is shifted about an inch
to the left of the display , can any recommend some modeline settings
to fix this.
Also what is the status of X running with the radeon driver on a
tibook? When I switch the driver to 'radeon' in my XF86Config I get a
no devices found error on start up. Is it worth me building X 4.2 / CVS
from source and using that ?
Any help greatly appreciated.
