As I understand it, something was changed in the KBM (kernel based mode setting), that thingy which prevents flickering of the display during boot and changes of resolution. Maybe it is just a side effect...
jzl where did you get the info from that its about kms ?
when i disable kms while in X windows i can change console with ctrl+alt+f1-f6 no problem but if kms is enabled then when i try to switch back to consoles with ctrl+alt+f1-f6 it gives black screen and i cant use ctrl+alt+backspace no more.
also xorgsetup when trying to detect hardware gives black screen no matter if kms is enabled or disabled. im wondering what cause that it gives black screen?, im wondering how xorgsetup operate? does it operate in a way that its trying to start a xorg server when detecting hardware?
i saved xorg.conf from previous xorg server from slack13
and tried to start x to see what happens.
i get this:
because at the moment im unable to get proper resolution in X windows. i see that many ppls say that driver that i have installed is conflict with x-org server or does not support xorg server that im running, so i will see about it.
thats why i would like to know how xorgsetup operate when detecting hardware through hal?
And I have that problem, but I am not using any drivers for the video card. So, before slackware start on the lilo prompt to type nomodeset, and I should turn off kms from lilo.conf? But after that X may not work?
im speaking in the name of intel chipset 865g, if you have slackware-current installed libdrm and xf86-video-intel-2.10 installed you can start X windows no matter if kms is enabled or disabled, but resolution wont be properly displayed, as i described earlier. however im still waiting for peoples to answer on my questions that i posted,
