How to compile a driver
I've been fighting with Suse9.0 to have my video card working. I can't change the resolution in my screen, I am able to change the color depth. I tried to use xf86config. I selected as default 16bit color and then I just removed the 640x480 resolution from the 16bit color. I even did it with all the rest of the colors, but when I reboot my computer, it just seems to have problems and leaves my computer at 640x480.
I am a bit frustuated with Linux, something that should be easy has become too complicated,
I search on the internet and I found a workaround for RedHat Linux which was to add a line into the xf86config "Option "SECursor"", well did not work
I also found a driver at:
humboldt.co.uk/asiliant (add www at the beggining and .html at the end, forum did not allow me to add an web add)
and I need help to install it, if that's my only option for changing the resolution
I read a tutorial about how to compile the kernel, but I still does not know where do I need to place the file that I got from that website. Do I need to create a folder inside /usr/src/Linux*(*version)/drivers/video with the name of my driver and then place the file in that website?
Do you have any suggestion to change the resolution or directions about how to install the driver?
My video card is Chips and Technologies 69030 (according to the message when booting my computer) using an intel processor
Thanks in advance
