Find and set video driver

#1 Postby slopoke » Mon Dec 12, 2011 3:15 pm

Just did my first antiX install with xfce desktop. The video chip on this laptop is a "ATI MOBILITY RADEON 9600 graphics controller with 32 or 64 MB of Video RAM". This is from the spec sheet. By the descriptions in Synaptic the driver should be: xserver-xorg-video-radeon (which is installed, along with several other xservers). During boot there is a reference to: radeon/R300_cp.bin. My personal desktop comp has a nice GUI setup for my Nvidia card. Haven't found a similar thing for xfce. Is there a pkg I need to install? Or edit xorg.conf? But what entries?

Hope I put this in the correct place.

I'd suggest you either post this question over at: http://antix.freeforums.org/ or in the antiX specific forum here.
