I'm having problems getting x to run on my laptop, antbody have a sample config, or know where i can find one for a new laptop .. Mine is a toshiba.
Do you know what video adapter it has, or what model of Toshiba it is?
Kind of, it isn't much use, any other ideas, that linux-laptop.net was not useful either.
What results do you get when you run, as root, lspci ?
how do i run that command?
From a console, type su -c lspci and it will asl for the root password. then it will give you some output.
VGA compatible controller:" nVidia corporation nv17 [gforce4 420 GO] (rev a3)

Same video card as my laptop Or almost the same.
