Re: [linux-dell-laptops] Re: Display blanks and is then messed up.
- System : RH 8 on dell Inspiron 82K, NVidia GEForce2Go. Native XFree
I never had this problem until I upgraded X11 to the latest release
(4.3.0). My symptoms are a little different, screen is scrolled down and
wrapped by half. Not very easy to use.
I disabled the screen blanking feature in the Bios, and this "solved" my
problem. Not very elegant, of course.
If you have any right way out of this problem, let me know please.
