    Trident Cyber 9525 - vesa driver

    Hello

    I use Linux on an old laptop and am having problems with the configuration of "xorg.conf"
    My video card is a Trident Cyber 9525 and when I use the Trident driver, I have a problem with scrambled lines at the bottom of the screen.
    Usually, in other linux distributions I fix this using the vesa driver.
    In xorg.conf I change the line
    Driver "trident"
    By
    Driver "vesa"
    But on ubuntu 8.04, when I do this fix, when you start X, the screen is scrambled and blinking.
    What should I do?

    Thank you.

    SOLVED: I just change xorg.conf with this line:

    DefaultDepth 16
    in Section "Screen".

    Thanks.

    How do you get to a terminal and then to xorg.conf to make changes?
