Re: Setting up X
I had also posted about my issue on the xorg-users mailing list. I got
this as a suggested solution, using an xorg.conf file with only these
four lines in it.
Identifier "Forced vesa driver"
If the only problem was vesa failover for the graphics card, and X could
correctly identify and use all the other peripherals, than this would
work, which it did.
I added a Monitor section with a HorizSync 28-75
and then I was able to get a default display of 1280x800 - not the best,
but definitely livable.
Amazingly, everything else on this laptop works under NetBSD. I have not
yet tried suspend/hibernate, or the webcam but those are last on my laundry
