buggy videocard
« on: October 08, 2010, 20:00:21 PM »
Hello. Recently I bumped into PC with mb on i815 chipset with integrated videocard which didn't supported vesa properly. So loading X with "vesa" driver cause total mess on screen. But "intel" driver works fine. Is there any way to automate recognition of such cases and X reconfigure?

you can do the same http://forum.plop.at/index.php/topic,414.msg2734.html#msg2734
create a xorg.conf with the intel driver and copy the file at startup to /var/xorg.conf

copy the file at startup to /var/xorg.conf
but how to decide is it necessary? i want flexibility without manual config editing every time.

you only have to write the copy command to the runme.sh. then your xorg.conf is always used. no manual copy is required
