i have been to the web site and looked at all the neat stuff but I am
still new to linux and would like to know is there any real advantage
to getting 6.3?
I just got 6.2 a few weeks ago and am still having problems getting
it up on my system. I have asked for help from suse but the advise
they gave did not work.. at all!
I have abandond sax and am useing xf86config to get my xserver con
figured, this is not to hard except that I cant seem to find the spects on
my monitor so its a guessing game at this point. also xf86config seems
to not have all that many options for mice and keyboards, just an
observation:) the reason for this whole mess is I have a voodoo3 card
and no matter what i do in sax it wont work.. I wrote to you guys about
it at the begining of the week and tryed all of the advise yall gave me,
thanks BTW:) but none of it worked .
it seems that xf86config sets up the xserver just fine and them i startx
and my desktop is running at like 200x200x2 or some rediculous rez like
that. and I have a 20 inch tatung at home that i used at work for cad
design on a unix system for a few years. anyway after i exit the window
manager i read the .X.err file in the home dir and find that all the rresalutions
were disabled because it wants 70+ khz vsink or some thing like that.
to run 1024x768 it want something 108, does that seem right to yall?
anyway back to the question, would 6.3 be easyer to use with newer
hardware( though i hardly consiter a voodoo3 new hardware it appears
that to me that the linux world runs just a little behind when it comes to
new hardware and pc's.. no offence).
