Problem with graphics contoller

Hello my username is vbat

Could you please help me?

I have a IBM Intel Celeron ® CPU 2.50GHZ, 2.9GHZ: 512 MB of Ram

I have installing Linux Suse 9.1 Professional on to my IBM PC; my problem is with the colour and resolution related to the graphics card:

I am trying to use 1024x768 with 24 bit resolution

The errors I have is this message is displayed:
1. KK 1810(0) No video BIOS node for chosen depth
2. KK Screen(S) found but none have a useable configuration

I have an Intel(R) 82845G/GL/GE/PE/GV Graphics Controller on the IBM, the chipset No is:
o FW 82801DB L410NA16 5L6DM

The IBM Celeron is identification is:
o MT-M 8191-MMY: Serial NO: KEKP90A

Could you please recommend a solution to this problem, I will be very grateful for it.

Kind regard’s

Hi vbat!

When you boot into SuSE, open a terminal, login as root (type "su") and type the following:


That will bring up Sax2, SuSE's configuration tool for the X-server. Make sure to specify as good as you can your monitor(including resolution), mouse, keyboard and video card (type, amount of memory, etc) in there.

When done, save the changes and restart the X-Server (you can simply reboot if you want).

If your videocard/monitor ain't supported there, you could try to use a generic or customized one.

I hope it works for you.
