Re: Dell Inspiron 1100 : TV Out?
Aaah, bad news, aye..
okay, well like, what kernels has been reported with negative results?
can a upgrade to unstable help in this case?diff. distribution? or
perhaps kernel 2.6.0-beta ?
and also, what is the way this is Supposed to be done?
i know the enabling in the kernel, but after that?
(you see im kindof out in the blue on this subject..and i also see
different ways on different places to different cards... very confusing)
