I've read many posts and guides but no solutions...
I have to be missing something.
It is Intel HD Graphics on i3 processors (1st gen)

I tried:
X -configure //failed with no device to configure
recompiling the X drivers //didn't help

any ohters?

Hi,

..."thus is the way the weekend ends"... after a whole two days of pondering...eh.

Okay, I had the very same of a Fedora 10, and Intel graphics (i8x and an i9x - dunnow the specs) and I got by with a VESA setup.

Normally, X should be clever enough to figure this out...but hey. They have a great document on the FreeBSD site, helped me too...

Luck!

Thor

I see it helpd you solve this challenge. Dbus and Hal, eh? Is'nt Gentoo a bit like Arch? If so, then it's not a fault, but a lesson learned

Happy and educational Linuxin' !

Thor
By the way...a Haiku seems great for a sig...
