New computer, new problems
I built one of those Shuttle SS51g mini-computers and installed Mandrake 8.2. After the install, I discovered that Mandrake was using Xfree86 version 3.3.6 instead of 4.2 like it did on my other computer.
When I went into the Control Center to configure the display, I found the Sis SG86C201 chip listed, but when I selected and applied it, I got an error message. Something about 16 ppd(?) not supported by this chip.
Has Mandrake selected 3.3.6 because it knows the IGP won't work with 4.2? Or am I getting the error message because I'm not using 4.2?
How can I switch to 4.2 to try that?
How do I determine which XF86Config file is in use?
There's about four of them listed under /etc/X11/XF86Config.
