Arrow Mobile Intel(R) 915GM/GMS,910GML Express Chips - SVideo


Hello,

I am trying to hook up SVideo in my computer. I'm not really sure how to get it to work.

Are there certain SVideo connections that I need for this certain video card?

Is "Mobile Intel(R) 915GM/GMS,910GML Express Chips" my video card? I'm kind of new to all this, so I want to make sure I am looking at the right thing. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Do a lspci or even lspci -v for more output and look for the line VGA compatible controller.
For example I get
Code:
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV31 [GeForce FX 5600] (rev a1) (prog-if 00 [VGA])
        Flags: bus master, 66Mhz, medium devsel, latency 248, IRQ 5
        Memory at f8000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16M]
        Memory at e0000000 (32-bit, prefetchable) [size=256M]
        Expansion ROM at <unassigned> [disabled] [size=128K]
        Capabilities: [60] Power Management version 2
        Capabilities: [44] AGP version 3.0
from lspci -v, meaning nVidia Corporation NV31 [GeForce FX 5600] is my video card. This is from a Desktop PC not a mobile one, but still, it should be the same thing. As for how to setup the SVideo, I really have no clue. But after you find out exactly what your video card is, you can maybe look further on other threads using the Search button, or using Google. Good luck.

Here's the thing:

I don't know how to do that haha. If you don't mind, could you just tell me how to do the whole LSPCI/LSPCI -V deal? If not, it's all good. (Like I said, kind of new to all this)

Thanks in advance!

You need to enter the command that nykey gave you at a command line prompt. if lspci doesn't work, try /sbin/lspci

You can do this by either opening a console application in the GUI (look in your menu for something that says "terminal" or "konsole" or something similar), or by pressing CTL-ALT-F2 to get to a fullscreen console session. Type the command, press enter, and post the results. If you use CTL-ALT-F2 (actually any between F1-F6 should work depending on your distro or runlevel), press CTL-ALT-F7 to get back to the GUI.
