    Great read BTW!



    When I specify EXA in the xorg.conf file, I don't see in the log where it is instead loading XAA mode? Actually I don't even see it loading EXA at all... maybe I should run...

    Thanks for the reply, but I think it is already falling back to the vesa driver (on the siliconmotion tablets) because I do eventually get past the black screen on boot, and then it loads xfce just...
  5. [xfce] Re: SiliconMotion video driver - All attempts have failed - Walkabout XRT...

    Ok, apparently 1 of the 10 Walkabout tablets is using an intel video chipset, as opposed to SiliconMotion. With exception of the SiliconMotion systems, this one will not boot up without a black...

    I updated the partition table list (on the first post...) using the deeper testdisk search like you asked. I also notice that fdisk reports sda's max cylinders as 30401 but testdisk...
