Re: [K12OSN] xserver error



Hi Jim,

OK I tried that, changing to Xserver = XF86_SVGA and got a different error config error /tmp/XF86Config.1:45
Hhorizontal display expected

What's strange is that all the clients are Compag P-I 75 to 166Mhz and some work and some don't. Could it be the video chipsets/video cards ?
