I've got an Acer Aspire Notebook with an Unichrome PRO Graphic chip (so the handbook, lspci only sais: VGA compatible controller: Via Technologies, Inc.: *ARHG*)
So I tried to use the CVS driver, but the Display blanks out.
(and I have to reboot)
in my XF86 logfile one line sais:
(II) VIA: driver for VIA chipsets: CLE266, KM400/KN400, K8M800, [...]
So it seemed to me as if the K8M800 is supportet.
It is even detected by the driver, but then after reading a little bit in the log file I found:
(WW) VIA(0): This device seems to be a VIA Unichrome Pro K8M800.
(WW) VIA(0): There is no specific support for this device yet in this driver.
Now my question is: are you still working on that driver...
Or is the driver allready useable and maybe I've done something wrong?
I have exactly the same problem - getting around with vesa atm, - however shoving my external monitor in (which works with vesa), i can start up - monitor "Out Of Range" on top of a blue/grey kinda background. I can kill X with Ctrl+Alt+backspace from monitor.
oops completely wrong thread! ignore that bug comment.
I've followed the instructions at http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/forum.php?thread_id=5333478&forum_id=38837
among other places, seem to get really really poor 3d Support on CRT (i.e less than software rendering..) and out of range problems (prob my settings here) -- panel (with LCD_PANEL tmp setting (tmp |= something) remains black, with no backlight
I am having this problem as well. Was there ever a fix for it?
