I am a Linux newbie and has been enchanted by DSL since last couple of days. I have spent hours after hours exploring DSL and its oppertunities.
I have fixed almost all of my configuration issues except one.
I am facing issue with my Display on my old laptop.
IBM 600E 2646 (4BU)
RAM 96 MB
Display Chipset: NeoGraphic [MagicMedia 256AV] (Detected
Problem: Red & Blue color shades are swapped. The resolution and quality is acceptable. But the color seems to be odd.
Do I need to install any specific drivers or change some settings?
Please guide me in getting through this.
Thanks in advance.
Posted by curaga on Sep. 23 2008,12:23The usual question - have you tried Xfbdev yet? Or 16-bit depth on Xvesa?
Select Xsetup from the control panel to change these, and then restart X (ctrl-alt-backspace, "startx")
Posted by hasslehawk on Sep. 23 2008,15:59So silly of me...
I never changed the depth always tried to change the resolution.
Thanks a lot for quick response.
I never thought world outside windows is so exciting.
Enjoying DSL !!!
