i'm trying to set up my laptop
Siemens Lifebook C with
VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Rage Mobility P/M AGP 2x
with woody and xfree86-4 and kde...
and i'm getting the blues!
-> with xserver xfree86-mach64 (xfree86-3) and kde-3.1
i had a running environment, but even with xfstt fonts were not
as with xfree86-4. And my grafic was not supporting GL stuff...
-> with xfree86-xserver (xfree86-4) and kde-3.1 fonts were fine,
but when i switch back from my grafics-screen (ALT-CTRL F7)
to any ascii-console (ALT-CTRL-F1...6) i only see vertical
flickering lines... At least i could switch back to F7.
-> then today i upgraded to kde-3.1.1 and qt-3.1.2
to get rid of the message that 162 packages should be upgraded.
After that with xfree86-mach64 the kdm crashed 3 times so
X was not started at all.
-> with xfree86-4 kdm runs at least, but still shows the bug
with/from qt-3.1.2 discussed on this list, so i downgraded
back to qt-3.1.1.
Now also the combination kdm/xfree86-mach64 is running.
-> but then i realized, that the menus behind the mouse-buttons
are gone :( When i login (xfree86-3-or-4) i see in the upper
left corner 3 icons appearing and then the background is drawn
again (flat color, no wallpaper) "over that" and on my desktop
are no icons and no menus behind the mouse-buttos :(
For space reasons i did a "apt-get clean" and now all my kde-3.1 stuff
is lost. Where can i find these packages now? How can i tell "ktown"
that i want to downgrade back to 3.1?
Is anybody using that ATI Rage Mobility successfully with xfree86-4
and can tell me how to configure it better than i have done?
With best regards,
