X in Woody - what gives
Asus A7V / 750Mhz Athlon / 512MB
Matrox Millenium G200 SD
The system is working under Gentoo, had been working fine under SUSe and
Mandrake before I blew them away. I recently downloaded all 8 Woody CDs
from a mirror in Norway.
I am having the worst time with X (4.x). startx just would not work
claiming that mga_ha1 was missing. I ran and reran xf86cfg and xf86config a
couple of times. (can never remember configurator is for which version of X)
a couple of times. No luck.
In frustration I just appended '.old' to both XF86Config and XFConfig-4.
When I entered startx up came GDM. I rebooted the system and got to the gdm
What is going on? Other than less colors (I estimate 256), the resolution
appears to be 1024x768 which is just right for my 15" LCD panel.
Secondarily how do I capture the configuration and translate that into an X
Any thought greatly appreciated.
