Good morning, all.
My laptop died on the weekend. (HP, 4th time in the last year !) So I
pulled the hard drive and installed it in a Dell desktop machine.
Everything works fine except that I can never get the video/display
working properly with this setup.
The laptop used an nvida board and I downloaded the driver from livna.
That worked perfectly.
When I first booted with the Dell machine, X wouldn't start, thus I only
had the console. I backed up xorg.conf and then deleted it. X will
now start, but the screen size is wrong and I can't get to the start
If I run Xorg -configure, X won't start.
According to hwbrowser, the Dell machine uses an Intel 82865G Integrated
Graphics Controller. It also states the driver is intelfb.
I can run system-config-display, but the display (Dell FPW2005) doesn't
show an option for the 1650x 1080 resolution.
How do I fix things so that the KDE desktop size matches the display
How do I get the display size to be 1650 x1080 ? (If I edit the
Xorg.conf file to add a mode 1650x 1080 line, X won't start again.)
