Acer Laptop Display Drivers
 
Hi there

I am after display drivers for my acer travelmate 2410. I cant seem to locate them anywhere and this 6x4 is really horrid to look at.

Running fedora core 4. thanks in advance

mines in 600x400 too but an IBM T30 running Fedora Core 4 and at least it's a full screen look.
Unlike one time mandrake 10.1 installed in a tiny small box with black around it hehe.Thank goodness for the blue box to change the screen res.

i highly doubt your laptop would have any linux drivers.I am unsure if wine would let you run the windows one.

im assuming your laptop has Intel graphics hardware...if so try this link http://support.intel.com/support/graphics/linux/

Hi,
you can try the drivers from intel but I wish you luke.
I have a TravelMate 660 that also uses an intel graphic chipset and all the times I tryed th intel driver with FC2 and FC3 the didn't even boot up completely.

Take a look at the file /var/log/Xorg.0.log and try to figure out what resolution modes your graphic card supports, configure your /etc/X11/xorg.conf accordingly.
Take care with the refresh rates on the "Monitor" section, on the "Screen" section configure the graphic resolution you want, something like this:

Modes "1280x800" "other res." "other res." "800x600" "640x480"

good luke
