Yet another resolution Question,

Post by poisomike87 » Fri Feb 01, 2008 4:39

Hello, I joined in august and have been using sabayon on and off since august.

here is my problem,

I have a laptop A compaq presario V5204NRhttp://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/docu ... =c00700119

I did a clean install today, and got everything working. I saved the big problem for last, and that would be my resolution problems.

I know there are several other threads devoted around here about issues regarding the Intel 945G chipset and I have waded through most of them and tried them all, I got everything to work fine then I emerged corky customized that and restarted X.

Everything went back tot he way it was and will not go back.


Here is my xorg.conf
