Re: Video Card and Hard Drives

I'm running Etch with kernel 2.6.18-4-686 and KDE on a Toshiba TE2100 (tecra), and I'm having some issues with my video card.

It's an nVidia GeForce4 420 GO, which is, as far as I know, supported by the Legacy nvidia drivers.

I've tried the NV driver for XOrg, the proprietary nVidia drivers (legacy and not) from the website as well as the nvidia-glx and nvidia-glx-legacy packages. The non-legacy packages all don't work at all, and the legacy ones only give me a max resolution of 800x600. when I use the VESA driver for Xorg I can get 1024x768 which is, according to the spec sheet, what the screen can handle up to.

the problem with this is that the neither the NV or vesa drivers seem to have any 3D acceleration etc. (I know it's only got 16MB of VRAM... but I'm not trying to play oblivion here :-P )

Does anyone have any ideas as to what I can do to remedy this?

Also I was wondering if there are any compatibility issues with using USB Hard drives that anyone knows of, or are they all fine? I'm assuming that they just show up as Mass Storage Devices or something, but before I go out and spend $150 on one, I thought I might just ask...

thanks a lot in advance


Option "IgnoreEDID" "true"
то section Monitor and you will have 1024x768
