Re: Help with XFree
www.linux-laptop.net is our friend.
I looked it up and found under
http://t2100cdt.kippona.net/linux/lte5200/ the following, which might
be the solution for your laptop:
in X 4.1.x you can use the "vesa" driver at 800x600 16 bit no problem
at all! gave up on the "cirrus" driver after finding out i could use
vesa. no idea if there's a performance hit at all but it goes and thats
all that counts for me! maybe someone else can shed some light on how
to use the cirrus driver to get more speed, but this will get you going
in the meantime :) hope it helps someone!
