alrighty... a have another headache to add to the list...

i have searched around the net, and stared at my screen to try and solve my problem, but alas, no joy!

i have installed a basic debian system on to my ibook, and it all works fine through the command line.. however... when i start up, the xfree86 config says that it cannot detect a screen on the default pci:0.16.0 or whatever it is... so i have no idea how i can get the system to recognise my screen...

when i boot into debian via yaboot, i pass the string "video=ofonly", could this have something to do with it?

is it possibly to do with the radeon driver??

any help would be greatly appreciated!!

paul.

well... it seems i was a little too premature on this post... i have since found a mountain of information out on the net, albeit a little hard to find exactly what to use...

the xfree86 site has a lot of info on how to configure the xserver etc...

till next time... :)

Have you tried to reconfigure the xserver package..... if not try this
dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86 (most probably)
this should allow you to manually configure all the settings of your agp card mouse etc...
hope it helps
