I am trying to run Xwindow on a NEC Versa LX laptop computer, under
I am supposed to have an SVGA screen (800x600) with a chipset named ATI
The only way I can make it (slightly work) is by creating the link
ln -s XF86_SVGA X
and then configuring by XF86Setup;
Mouse and keyboard configuration processes went fine,
and I had to choose the SVGA option in the card menu;
The system then tried to start xinit; immediately after this, I could see a
blind region in the screen (in the middle).
Otherwise, there was indeed an xwindow in the screen.
The file /etc/X11/XF86Config turned out to be wrong concerning
the number of lines and columns of the screen, even though I chose
the right option in the menu; it seems it was not retained...
I was told that I should use XF86_mach64 since this is the correct one
for ATI cards, and to choose the Mach64 option in the card menu;
but if I do this the screen goes blank when I try to run
xinit or startx and I have to reboot the system...
I tried different combinations, with not much success...
Does anyone has a file XF86Config that works on a Nec Versa LX ?
Or can anyone tell me what to do?
Thanking you for your help,
