Re: Compaq nx9010?

I couldn't get the screendriver working in gnome. 

It worked well with 'squeeze', but after updating it stopped. 

It has been some time since I worked with the machine last time and 
I don't remember well how I installed it earlier. I expected the update 
to keep it working but it didn't...  

I will do  'lspci | grep VGA' after I'll get back to the machine and will let you 
know the result.  

I'm now not at the machine, but traveling with another machine.  

with best,

 What kind of screen problems? Are you using the
 proprietary AMD drivers
 or the opensource
 video drivers?
 'lspci |
 grep VGA' should give the actual video card.
 I would suggest some dpkg -l | grep ??? but
 I'm not sure what to search
 for exactly
 to get something useful.
