      Hi,
      I'm trying to get a Dell Latitude CPi with a NeoMagic graphics chipset
      up and running with RedHat 6.0. I have the latest X Server installed.
      The rest of the install went fine, when I try and start X on the Lap
      top I get a blank screen.
      Below is my XF86Config and the boot log. Any ideas?

      ps with the standard XConfigurator file I managed to get the giant
      320x? resolution. Couldn't get out of that either

        Hi,

        I had a similar problem not long ago. The problem seemed to be that the
        system could not detect if the laptop was docked or not automatically,
        and
        so defaulted to the internal display even if docked.

        To get around this, I use 2 XF86Config files, one for docked one not.
        For the docked version, you need to comment out the intern_disp option
        in the section as below, and for undocked leave as your original. You
        can
        do this be either entering a virtual console window to switch over
        manually,
        or write a script to detect automatically. I wrote a small rc.docked
        file
        to check /proc/interrupts for an allocated interrup for eth0. If it
        exists, then the machine is docked so it runs the docked file.

        Hope this helps,

        Kev
