Having a problem with something stupid I did with one of my computers running
debian etch. Using the computer primarily to serve 2 sites, a a blog, and a
local LUG site..
Took the drive out of one pc with a slower processor, and put it in a newer pc
I built with an athlon sempron processor and 1 gig ram. Much, Much faster!!!
The obvious problem is, X server no longer starts, as xorg.conf is tailored
for the other computer.
I edited xorg.conf, and changed the device to the name of my video card, which
I copied identically from where it is listed with lspci, and changed the
driver name to trident which is what the card is.
it doesnt work, I know I have to change the screen too, but Im not sure where
to get the correct info to put here. monitor type and such
My question is, is there a utility to run that will re detect my video
hardware, and build a new xorg.conf so I can use x on this computer? Im
going crazy with different combinations of xorg.conf and cant get any to work
