Hi. I am using Debian. I just installed off of the cd's a day or two ago.

I have the intel 810 chipset graphics driver PV1.1

I am trying to get KDE to work.

I use the following command to configure:

dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86

I am given a list of video card drivers to select from.

When I use the i810, I get the following message:

Fatal server error:
AddScreen/ScreenInit failed for driver 0

When I use the vga driver, KDE works, but everything is absolutely ridiculously huge when KDE starts.

Any suggestions?

What version of debian (woody{stable}, sarge{testing}, sid{unstable}).

Do you have an NFORCE 2 motherboard?

What is your video card? Onboard, Voodoo, GeForce, etc.? smile.gif

VGA you probally don't want to use (it's quite shitty). Try "vesa", which is generic. You should be able to get 800x600 on it, hopefully. Edit /etc/X11/XF86Config (unless you have xorg, whereis it would be xorg.conf).

Change "vga" to "vesa", and (if you're in X still) control + alt + backspace. If it's still very big, please try "control, alt, +" where "+" is the "+" on the numeric pad. Or control + alt + "-" where "-" is the "-" on the numeric pad.

Best of luck!

Otherwise, search the net (probally from a diffrent computer, eh? wink.gif) for your video card drivers, and xfer it over on a diskette.
