Question Problem Openchrome, Ubuntu 7.10, and VN800


I have installed the openchrome driver in Debian Etch, Fedora 8, and Ubuntu 7.10. In the case of the Debian and Fedora the driver is recognised, X-server and GDM load without trouble. The driver is being loaded:
Code:
grep openchrome /var/log/Xorg.0.log

(II) LoadModule: "openchrome"
In the case of Ubuntu 7.10 the openchrome driver is loaded but 'X-server' fails and GDM will not load. This has been the case with both upgrades and fresh installs of Ubuntu 7.10. The X-server defaults to 'xorg.conf.failsafe'.

Can someone please help me with this...?

I am no expert, but on comparing the 'Xorg.0.log' files in both Debian Etch and Ubuntu 7.10 the only lines I can find that look suspect are the following:

From Ubuntu:
Code:

(==) VIA(0): DPI set to (100, 100)
Thanks for any help.
