Re: [opensuse] video problem with an ancient laptop [SOLVED]
On 2013-08-12 04:49 (GMT+0200) Carlos E. R. composed:

cat /proc/cmdline
BOOT_IMAGE=/boot/vmlinuz-3.7.10-1.1-default
root=UUID=c538c7a3-97ea-4eae-91fc-fdfea0fc1aca
resume=/dev/disk/by-label/Swap showopts splash=verbose console=tty1 loglevel=3
vga=791

instead, that's why I did not even try vga=...

Removing vga= from kernel line has no effect here.

Here I get a huge white band on the lower half of the display, as
described in my first message. Yours works because you get the EDID info,
mine does not have it, too old, I guess.

Maybe there is a way to provide locally that EDID info, so that it is not
probed?

If you never did, give a try subsituting video=1024x768@60 (or @75 if supported and you so choose). That way I doubt EDID matters. Barring typos, KMS usually obeys whatever I put following video=.


On the 845G box that Xorg.0.log came from I've just initiated a 13.1M4 installation.
