Geode drivers for Xorg Subject description: Updating Xorg for Geode in Dpup 484beta
I tried dpud on my AMD 3600+ desktop. It is real cool.
I am trying to use it now on my LX800:
AMD LX 800 500Mhz
LG 1643 C LCD 15.5"
I am having problem configuring the Xorg. After initial boot up, when we arrive at the Keyboard/Language/ etc option the screen just has some yellow lines or the top of the monitor. I cannot get to see any config options at all. So I just press enter several timesand land up with DPUP running 600x480. Running xorg from there too does not help.
I downloaded :
xf86-video-geode-2.11.8-q1.pet from /xf86-video-geode-2.11.8-q1.pet.
Need help to know how to configure xorg for my system (LX800). Can I install this pet for DPUP and if so pl tell me how. I am just a linux "greenhorn"
Thanks in advance..
I have been able to get the the resolution up to 1024x768 but only at 16 bpp after I installed the drivers xf86-video-geode-2.11.8-q1.pet. This too I did by doing enter presses counting the sequence from the dpup boot I did with with AMD 3200+. The configuration screens in Xorg are all garbled.
How do I get them to show up and configure the resolutions and colour depth correctly. Even when I shut down the machine, I get a garbled screen. Please help. Regs.
