    Sax2 only shows VESA card


    After a lon struggle, I finally managed to get the Intel 965G driver up and running, along with a new xserver 1.3. The screen looks fine, and the log in Xorg.0.log has no significant complaints. So far so good.

    What worries me is, that the 965G does not show up in Sax2, not matter if started from Yast or from console. Only card type known is
    "VESA Vesa-BIOS Graphics".

    Any ideas, anyone ? Tnx in advance for any tips.

    Replace intel with i810 in above section of xorg.conf file and install 915resolution package.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    --> devils_casper:

    I did as you suggested about xorg.conf, and the 915resolutions package was alredy installed (SuSE 10.2).

    Alas, no improvement - I still see only the Vesa card in Sax2

    Regards Joern.
