Re: [linux-dell-laptops] Re: Inspiron 8000+Ubuntu 8.04 and later
Good for you, Ted. I went through so many configurations I don't know what was going on with my system. I do know that for some reason xorg wasn't automatically choosing the r128 driver. My current configuration does. My Hsynch is 31-75 and Vsynch is 50-85.

Re: Inspiron 8000+Ubuntu 8.04 and later
I have an Inspiron 8000 with Hardy Heron in front of me right now
Thanks for the Fn-F7 tip, didn't know this. But re screen res - All I did was edit xorg.conf - in the "Monitor" section somewhat optimistically added
Restarted X and bang! 1400x1050. This is on a vanilla xorg.conf from install, didn't install anything or add any drivers...

I'm sorry Peter. I don't remember where I came across that specification. It's quite possible I got it from either the Dell forum or from ATI, but I don't remember. At the time I read it I considered it a reliable source. It makes sense in relation to the folding display....

Hi Chris and everyone.
I find it very intresting that you say that the Radeon M4 was constructed for a
17inch laptop witch one might I ask? Is their any independent source that can
The reason why I ask is so that I can realy the info and continue digging up
more info that can help in improving the driver support.
Great tips Hayes I'll be sure to pass it along to fellow Inspiron users.
