Re: [K12OSN] K12Linux F10 Display problem

I did some research on the Compaq D51 early on last month and found that the problem is x.org based. There is a bug in the i810 support, which has been reported and acknowledged, just not fixed as yet that I know. I would check the x.org site again though, they may have fixed it by now. You know that you can use a default vesa driver setting and get them working, just have to deal with limited tweaking on the screen resolution. I think I also ran into a problem with getting a blank screen when logging out of the thin client using the vesa driver.

This setup has served us well and has been hands off for three plus years.

I plugged in the k12 live usb (pretty slick) and booted a few of the lab 
terminals with mixed results.
We have a mixture of  CRTs and LCDs and some of them will not display.
The clients are all Compaq DS51 and DS5S
We ran into the same problem when we demoed the latest ubuntu a few 
months back.
I'm guessing that the newer x servers don't work well with the older 
hardware we have and it has nothing to do with a particular 
distribution. It's looking like we will have to dig in and make some 
manual adjustments to the display properties.
I'm looking around /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/X11 but it is not obvious where I 
should make changes.
