Anybody managed to get X working on such a machine?

Actually, I think I found a solution.

I used method #1 from Steve's Inspiron X-Page at

http://www.eecs.umich.edu/~steveh/inspiron/

and modeline


Modeline "1280x1024" 110 1280 1328 1512 1712 1024 1025 1028 1054

as suggested by Maxim Bazhenov.

Seems to work fine. Thanks guys.
Cheers,
Manuel

1. ATI Rage Mobility-P on Dell Inspiron 7500 Problems

Hi,
  I cannot manage to get X running on a new Dell Inspiron
7500 with the Rage Mobility P chipset.  The ATI has 8 mb
video ram and the screen is supposed to be able to go to
1280 x 1024 [can do this in win98].

  Does anyone have any specific information on this
problem?  Is there a solution short of just waiting for the
support to come out?  I think I have the latest Mach64 x
server.

TIA,

Bob Hartung
