Re: Problems with X on my Titanium PB

Hi Johnathon,

Two importants things about my TiBook page: I own a TiBook3 which is
more than 1 year old now (make sure you have the same model), and I am
still using the config file you got but I am sure it's possible to do
better now.

What kind of TiBook do you have? What video chipset is in it?
