Ubuntu and Dell Inspiron 6000
I have a problem. I have a DELL Inspiron 6000 15.4 " Wide Screen monitor, a 915Gm chipset Graphics card.
Firstly I couldn't get Mandrake Linux 10.1 on this machine, so tried installing Ubuntu 5.04. I have been able to install this succesfully. But I am not able to get the display working, even though I use only 1024 X 768, I have even tried using lesser resolutions.
When I run "startx", I am able to hear the sounds while X is booting, but unable to use the same. I even tried the Live CD version of Ubuntu 5.04, but without success. The same problem.
The point is that my wide screen monitor has a native support for 1200 X 800, with its I810 drivers, but I am unable to use the same, even a lesser configuration.
I am thinking that my xorg.conf should have some problems. I also see some errors regarding FONTS in the /var/log/Xorg file.
Please let me know some pointers on how to get this thing fixed.
