Guys, I am on an opensuse10.2 box.
My graphics card has not been properly by the OS. My graphics card is
VIA/S3G UniChrome Pro IGP with 64 MB of video RAM.
oTHER SPECS: amd 3200+ PROCESSOR, Transcend 1G ddr-400 ram, 80gb sata hdd.
I would like to know basically where i would be able to find the driver/what is the name of rpm containing graphics cards' drivers.
I have3 not run heavy applications such as xgl. Simple scrolling and moving of windows around is highly rippled. Every graphics application in suse 10.0 used to work perfectly on this box. Thus, it would be sufficient if someone could tell me the name of the rpm in suse 10.0 if you know that it will work in opensuse10.2
Else, please give me the name of the rpm containing the graphics drivers.
I used docaorckus' method.
My graphics card is working perfectly now. But is there any way to change /etc/X11/xorg.conf (only thru manual edition) by which I can prevent my X from allowing screen resolutions that i dont want? Else, for each user and in each desktop environment I use, I need to adjust the resolutions again and again. Please dont suggest SAX or commands. I AM LOOKING FOR MANUAL TEXT EDITING METHOD.
My question is not how to point a text editor to that location. I want to know which all lines in this file '/etc/xorg.conf' have to be modified so that i can restrict all other compatible resolutions. I use this comp for family purpose, so for each user of the family, I dont want to sit and change the default resolution and for each window manager. Therefore, I was looking for these lines as a shortcut.
