Please help me....
1. No 1024x768 resolution on my inspiron 3500 display when card and lcd is capable.
2. Secondly the fonts are very rough/blurry.
3. Thirdly no audio
Let me state I have tried several bug fixesa online to no avail that were posted
for FC1-FC3 builds.
I have been using the laptop for presentation purposes to clients and also for
getting my masters degree. I program in java which runs much quicker on this
laptop then Pentium 3 laptop I have.
An inpiron 3500 laptop
NeoMagic MagicMedia 256AV card
20GB hard drive
I installed FC4 and the following problems occured
Sound card ad1484 could not be found.
Fonts are blurry
No resultion above 800x600.
How reproducible: (evertime)
I have done 5 clean installations with 5 different patches tried for the
different problems. I have placed the links below. I actually did one more clean
install hopefully to prepare the laptop for an answer.
I am a newbie to Linux, but have been using PC's and Macs for 20 years.
Thank you to anyone that can help me.
Bugzilla is not a technical support forum. Please use the Fedora or X.Org
mailing lists for technical support assistance. If you can isolate a real
bug with the X server or video driver(s), file a bug report in X.Org
bugzilla at http://bugs.freedesktop.org in the "xorg" component.
As a side note, when filing bugs in bugzilla, file one issue per
bug report, as each bug report must track one single specific issue.
