Need video driver r128 (EDIT:solved)
I just switched distros from Mandrake to Slackware, and I'm pretty sure that Slackware does not have the proper video driver for my card. My computer is a laptop, and so probably has some funky configuration for the drivers, so it's hard to find the proper driver. When I was using Mandrake, the video output worked just fine... and as I recall, it was configured to use the driver "r128." I tried configuring the "xorg.conf" file to use the r128 driver, but X gave me something about "cannot find screens" or something to that extent, then died. So, now I'm pretty sure that Slack doesn't have the proper video driver.
I ended up googling all over to see if I can download the driver individually, but I couldn't seem to find anything. What frustrates me is that there is this one driver, that I *know* works, and *know* exists, but I can't find it...
But anyway, is there a way I can retrieve a the driver from a Mandrake install CD, or somehow access it on the internet? I'm sorta new to Linux, so I'm not quite sure how I would go about installing a new driver, so any tips on that would be appreciated as well.
Thanks in advance
