RE: XF86Config-4 - Was: RE: Newbie apt-get question

Got it, thanks.

One thing that I just noticed in the log is that it is seeing my ATI Rage
128 and finding (vidmem: 16384) and I notice that most of you that have sent
me parts of your config files have the driver set to r128, etc.  My driver
is fbdev, should I be using r128?

Thanks again,

Section "Device"
        Identifier      "ATI Rage Mobility M3"
        Driver          "r128"
        BusID           "PCI:0:16:0"
        VideoRam        8192     <-- here.
        Option          "UseFBDev"              "true"

That's the unix port for the local x font server.  If you have one,
it'll be used, otherwise, it will fall back to the FontPaths after it.

good luck!
