I'm having trouble finding version 1.3.7 of "xf86-video-trident" (the UPDATED Trident video driver for the Xorg X server).  The older version (1.3.6) as supplied with VL Light 7.1 won't load due to a bug which produces the following error message in /var/log/Xorg.0.log

 (EE) Failed to load /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/ /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/ undefined symbol: TRIDENT_Sync

Can anyone direct me to a VL-compatible repo that contains the NEW Trident driver?  I've tried ALL of the predefined repos at, plus this custom one:
Gslapt only shows me version 1.3.6, and I as far as I know, anyone with a Trident video controller needs version 1.3.7.

Nothing new?  :-\
I hope you'll find the problem and kick me in the right direction to solve it for me and future noobs...  ;)
I take it you're talking about language setup here. Vasm-legacy has been updated to put locale setting back on its menu, but your version may not have that yet. That's OK; all versions will let you run it without the menu.
Set the keyboard up first:
Code: [Select]
su root /sbin/vkmapsetEnter root password when prompted, then follow the menu. There is a message that this sets only the console keyboard. That is incorrect, it sets both. I'll be fixing that in later releases.

Pick a locale and character set:
Code: [Select]
su root /sbin/vlocalesetSame process as above. I assume you're looking for de_DE.utf8, but there are other options.

wigums:  I used to have at least 6 partitions that I could boot into (VL5.9, 6.0, 7.0, 7.1, DOS/FREEDOS, and win98 as well as a test partion).  Unfortunately I clobbered at least two of them installing 7.2RC.  (or was it Slack 14.1?)  Have been unable to play with Vector last winter and spring.

I have VL7.1 running on an E-machine with an Nvidia graphics Card.

When I did the original install on the HDD I chose the Automatic settings. After I confirmed that everything worked, I reformatted the drive, re partitioned, installed XP (This machine is intended for a user who is used to XP, but has a STRONG tendency to get infected with all types of malware,  so I want to install VL as a backup OS). So when I re-installed VL7.1 everything is OK and readable when I boot to Lilo (and initially Grub2 - I switched hoping yo fix the problem). But at the next screen (text) my old 19" Planar Flat panel monitor goes out of "Sync" (and on teh Greeter screen) and it is very hard to read what is on screen. I did manage to log in to the desktop and change my display settings, so I have a functioning Desktop, but if I log out to the "Greeter" screen to switch users, it messes up again, but I am able to see well enough to reenter my User/Pass. If I attach my much newer Acer 23" Flat Panel, all works as expected.

What can I do to fix this "Sync" issue with teh older monitor? I have no idea wher to go to fix this. I am realitively new to Linus so some hand holding would be appreciated!!!
