Description Chris Ricker 2001-03-30 03:07:53 EST
This is with qa0327

I have a Compaq Presaro 12XL125 laptop (Trident Cyberblade chipset).  The
XFree86 configs produced by anaconda, XFree86 -configure, and Xconfigurator
all fail to work on this machine -- it looks like they misconfigure the
LCD.  This is true whether I let the configuration tool detect the lcd, or
force it to use one of the generic lcd options.

This laptop was running XFree86 3.3.6 quite nicely....

I'm also not sure if this bug is against XFree86, anaconda, or what?

Try configuring your laptop using:

Xconfigurator --preferxf3

Does this fix it for you?
Comment 2 Chris Ricker 2001-03-31 04:06:00 EST
Configuring XFree86 3 with Xconfigurator does work.  However, XFree86 4 is
supposed to support that chipset with the trident driver....
