Re: Help needed with tibook 550 / Radeon mobility card / Pcmcia
All working now :))
X was fixed by upgrading to X 4.2 . I had to build from source ( just
with a default 'make World' ) and then rather ickerly installed over
the existing X debs - it may be safer to install under /usr/local .
I then switched the driver in XF86Config to 'radeon' and everything
was fine - 1152x768 at 24bit color and all lined up correctly.
If anybody is interested in my XF86Config, feel free to mail me.
Pcmcia was fixed by setting the following in /etc/pcmcia/config.opts
include port 0x100-0x4ff, port 0x1000-0x17ff
include memory 0xa7000000-0xa7ffffff
I also built a recent benh ( 2.4.19-pre3 ), which may have helped
