  • Hi

    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.

    • 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?
