debian questions (mouse, reso, sound etc.)


hi

so. i apt-got myself kernel 2.4.18-k7. snd works & resolution is fine since i use "vesa" instead of "nv". but "nvidia" installer complains about missing kernel module and wouldn't install.

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Default Screen"
Device "Generic Video Card"
Monitor "Generic Monitor"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Depth 1
Modes "1024x768"
EndSubSection



Look for this section in /etc/X11/XFConfig-4 Only have one Mode selected and X will try to use that one. change the mode to 800x600 and if your other settings are correct x will be at 800x600. as for your sound, run lspci and post the output and we'll see whats up with your sound

make another thread for those questions, more people will see your new questions that way.

reconifgure X

dkpg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86

that will prompt you through all the choices including mouse and resolution. FYI, if you are using an nvidia driver you should carefully go through the readme they provide as you have to manually edit your config file to remove an option and change the driver from nv to nvidia. I can't remember off the top of my head what those changes were but it's in the readme.

Good luck..
