I have slackware 10.1 and problem is that picture is moved in right side of screen. in slax and knoppix this is everything OK. xorg.conf is same like I use it in 10, and in 9.1 slackware.

i have DTK 15" monitor and resolution is 1024x768@75 HZ. also when I use windows XP at same resolution and 85Hz picture has same position in Win and Linux and in that case there no problems. but when I use same refresh in win and linux problem persist.

I used xvidtune but after restart everything stays same like before.

sorry on bad English

and thanks
It's ok,. Mine is not much better and its native to me lol. for my Display I used, xorgsetup and it sets it to the highest availalbe setting that the card and monitor can do.

I followed the kernal install instructions just replacing 2.6.11.8 for the 2.6.5. Slackware version 10.1 came with kernal 2.4.29. I was very satisfied the the kernal compiled although no sound, or net.. So another crack at it and I found my nic, but still no sound. Attempt #3 found my sound hardware, but the net doesn't work again. Well this is getting tiresome taking 1-2 hours per. I decided to follow the instructions that came with the kernal. Why does a make install take 2 minutes while the make command alone takes 20? Strange.. something tells me it isn't doing what I want it to. So 3 more attempts with this alternate and still no net.

I'm not sure if the files are being overwritten. My nic is still installed as I see with lspci which is exactly the same with both kernals I'm tired.
I had that very same problem too. Tulip driver, yet since there is 3, the 21x4 I think it is that I used to make it work. Since today my Mainboards IDE controller went, I had to dig out the Promise Ultra TX2 100 IDE card and use it and format my drives and redo everything. About 2 hours total time. So am back in business, now I have to copy the tar.gz file to my hdd again and re decompress it and start all over again.

I followed the steps in installing the driver (fglrx-4.3.0-3.12.0.i386.rpm) the compilation went ok but ther was an error after make_install. something to do with /lib/modules/2/4/26/kernel/drivers/char/drm/fglrx.o?

My video is ATI 3D Rage Proon a slacware 10 system...

did it come with instructions like the nvidia drivers on how to uninstall them?? I had to kill the nvidia ones, cause it made my 1400x1050 24 go to 1024x768 24, and I got so used to the 1400x1050 it really bothered me. the nvidia one is nvidia-installer -uninstall and it removes everything.

did you try this 'xorgsetup" ?? it will probe your video settings and try to set then to the highest settings possible, with the driver installed, you may get stuck at 1024x768, if you're lucky, even 1280x1024. Try it and see what happens, Also what version of Xorg 6.8.1 or 6.8.2?

P.S. do the xorgsetup at the command line only. Not in your Desktop.

Slackware 10.1 or -current?? Virgin 10.1 is 6.8.1, the update is 6.8.2. eitehr way you can use teh xorgsetup and it should fix most of your errors. try uninstalling the driver for the card first, then do the xorgsetup.

P.S. if you have any custom settings, like for your mouse, they will be erased sort of, there will be a backup of the xorg.conf.bak as it were, so you can copy the settings from there.

Thanks, your site and this thread have been a great help. Things don't work so smoothly over here as they do at your place but I'm getting there.

nice contribution, I never heard of dropline gnome until today, maybe I'll try it.

I disagree with the kernel, I prefer doing it from source, and the nvidia driver is a bit different, maybe when I get back to my house on Sunday, I'll write up a little guide doing it how I would, which is quite different, some of the similarities, but if I used gnome, and I might try it, I would not install dropline full, I would only download gnome 2.10 packages, and the libraries, and maybe a few extra things.

You've gotta be a bit careful there. There are a lot of things that GNOME depends upon that people often leave out of an install and experience some breakage. It's generally good to install everything first, and then start pulling things out from there.

Even if things aren't listed in the GNOME desktop and platform FTP directories, there are dozens of dependencies that must be met in order to make things work properly. Occasionally there are also other less-likely points of failure. Evolution is technically a "GNOME component", and as such can be built to integrate with the GNOME clock applet. If you pull "evolution-data-server", then the clock applet has a tendancy to flip out. It's just the way it goes in regards to building a GNOME desktop that makes use of many of the potential features. Unlike KDE, most things in GNOME aren't very self-contained (I suspect that this is one reason why Pat felt it was a pain to deal with it). It's much more prone to breakage if something is yanked out from underneath it.

Thanks shilo

Just a fast thank you. I have been using Linux (Fedora Core/SuSE) for 7 months. I loved the idea of fast/stable and knew that Slackware or Gentoo would be great. I just wasn't capable. So I just kept at google and these help sites. Got a little better at the command line. Here I am typing within my Slackware 10.1 current installation! Is that cool or what? I'm so proud of myself. The Slack Book is really helpful and so is this. So far, I reconfigured X and had the mouse problem, found your post and now I'm scrolling!

So far, sound is up, mouse is working, monitor is perfect. Tomorrow, I still have to get the printing/scanning going (HP PSC 1350 all-in-one), upgrade to 2.6 kernel, ATI drivers (yuk)! This is really fast and really cool. I still can't believe I did it. BTW--Is there a way to get a graphical login using grub. My Slackware entry is in my SuSE install??

To get to graphical login you've to change the runleve, the default is 3 (multiuser text-mode) and to get graphical you need 4.
Just edit the file /etc/inittab
and set the line
id:3:initdefault:
to
id:4:initdefault:

gbonvehi-

Thanks. I really need to stop and think a bit first. I have edited inittab before. I appreciate you helping me. Done and now in graphical login.
