SOLVED:vga driver
« on: July 13, 2008, 02:47:32 pm »

hi

i use soho 5.8 and want to load the right module for my graphhiccard in xorg.conf

only vesa worked..but only in 800x600 mode..but i need 1024x768.

my card:
Trident Microsystems CyberBlade XP4m32 (rev 91

the "trident" module in xorg.conf didnt work either...
although i wrote only 1024x768 in the line with the defult depth (16)

any suggestions which module would be the correct one?

Perhaps this is a Toshiba Tecra Laptop?

After Googling, this is the best I could find.

I do not know much German.

I am guessing that the problem was the hsync
