6274RE: Welcome to Linux-dell-laptops
- Sep 11, 2001Hello, I wanted to take a moment and introduce my self. My name is Stephen
McDonnell in sunny central Florida. I own a Inspiron 5000e (P3-700,
192mb,5gb,16m ATI, UXGA) and I recently installed RH7.1. I'm quite new to
Linux and looking forward to the day when I'm more competent and can hold my
own in a Linux discussion :P.
I spent quite a bit of time last night reading some old post's but man there
are just so many of them :) No one by chance has compiled them into one
file or so have they?
I don't want to hit everyone up for info too early but I figure I'll give
this some time to simmer. Like many people with the UXGA screen I can't get
me resolution to work properly, I get 1400x1050 but with a nice multicolored
band on the right hand side about 2 inches thick. I tried using the
X86config (think that's how it's spelled) fixes people have posted with no
luck. Does anyone have the RPM that supposedly Dell released for this? I
searched their sight for an hour last night and got rpm's for almost
everything else :( Right now I have a 100% fresh install so I'm working
If no one has the RPM, could some VERY kind soul tell me what needs to be
changed and HOW TO change the config file to make this work. Like I said I
tried editing it but am unsure if I changed the right things or not.
