Re: I4000 w/Docking station - X-win on external monitor?
- Thanks for helping me out! I've spent HOURS on HOURS
looking for this solution! A simple line added to a file corrected
my entire nightmare. Also, I changed the AGP option to 4 to
improve frame rate and it works fine.
BTW I did the original install of Mandrake 8.1 Gaming while
docked and the only way I could get x to configure was by
choosing Unlisted card in video set up. when i tried to change to
r128 driver is when this all began. All other HW, except the
modem (right, the thing we used to use for BBSes) and Xircom
realport 10/100, set up flawlessly.
