0810 xorg.conf question
« on: January 18, 2009, 04:18:05 am »
Hi gang--

I'm trying to get my MD up and running under 0810 so I can do some testing.  I'm having xorg.conf issues.  I believe this is due to the fact that I've got an ati embedded graphics chip on my core and an nvidia chip on the MD, so for example, there is no 'driver nv' line in the xorg.conf as referenced in the wiki. When I try to run currently, I get an 'out of range' warning on my monitor.

Does anyone have an example xorg.conf I can use?  Otherwise, I'm thinking of installing 0810 on the md, then copying the xorg.conf file.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
PeteK

Pete  kill the xserver... run startx and install restricted drivers from the kde desktop
reboot and run the avwizard.

User questions go into the user section!  ::) Moved from developers section.

Thanks for the info, I was able to get the MD up and running!  I'm still having some issues with the screen resolution, however.   Selection 720p seems to actually set the unit to a lower resolution, though this may be a desktop size and not screen resolution issue.  I'm not sure what's going on yet, but I'll dig into it a bit more and see if I need to post a trac bug.

Sorry about the post.  I thought all 0810 issues were going into the Dev forum.  I'll be a bit smarter about it next time.

Good point, hadn't looked at it that way, but it's still not very development related. ;)
