This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I've just upgraded to 7.1 from 6.0 Red Hat distribution. With 6.0 I used an oldie video card because the xfree did not supported my on-board `trident blade agp` video card. But now I upgraded and the xConfigurator detects the card perfectly but then the program reports a problem and sends me back to the monitor setup (which is a samsung syncmaster 3 with no trouble under 6.0.-
Red hat 6.0 xConfigurator autodetected my oldie pci video card and did not even ask for the `clockchip`. Now 7.1 does ask (and I have no idea which one to pick).
Looking for an answer. Thanks in advance.
i faced a similar problem when i upgraded my system
from redhat6.2 to redhat7.1. i was also using trident card.
what you can do is after installing 7.1, u take the 6.2 o.s cd and
force install all the x-windows rpm of 6.2. now run setup everything will be automatically detected , since 6.2 xwindows
rpm are being used.
use this command
get into the RPMS dir of 6.2 c.d
rpm -ivh --force --nodeps all the X-rpms.
see the man page of rpm if u have doubts.
well i wouldn't recommend actaully doing that, but instead install the Xserver version 3 from your cd's, which is what you'd be installing if you followed the last posts advice. X wants to install the newer version if it can, so remove the newer one (4.0.3) and install 3.3.6 instead. That's to use the old card of course
I really would like to use my onboard trident cyberblade. There is not a solution?. Everybody told me to upgrade to rh71 so the xfree would support the video card, but now that I have done it I still cannot... I hope you can help me out...
The onboard agp video card is a TRIDENT CIBERBLADE/i7.
In ´/proc/pci´ i can find the video card listed at irq 11.
The sound card, onboard too, is at irq 11 too. I heard about ´irq compartition´ or not? Would it be that?:smash:
