Trying to configure X
Questions arising during xf86config:
Mouse--I have a 3 button PS/2 mouse so I select "4 PS/2 Mouse". Since it
has 3 buttons I choose not to emulate 3 buttons. So good so far, but now it
asks for the full device name. I have no idea. It suggests /dev/tty00
which seems unlikely. Just pressing enter will default to /dev/mouse. This
seems reasonable, but my recollection is that a response to this question
previously said I need to enter /dev/psaux. I have looked through the
install doc and it does not answer this question.
Selection of the card. I have a Jaton Video-67pro PCI which is not listed,
however the chip on the card says Trident 3DImage975 which is in the table
showing the driver is the "3dimage975". Looks good, so I select that which
is number 651.
Now I am at the point which I must determine which server to run. My
4 The accelerated servers.....
5 "Choose the server from the card definition, XF86_SVGA"
None of these seem to be good choices, since mine appears to be "3dimage975"
I would pick XF86_SVGA, which appears in the list after the card definitions
for many many cards, but since for my card it explicitly noted "3dimage975"
it would not seem to be correct to pick XF86_SVGA. I should note that in a
failed configuration prior to this e-mail I did just that, and it didn't
So what do to?
