I need some help. As most of people here, I've got a sis video card and get anything more than 800x600 (I can get 1024x768 on vesa, but it's not good enough).
I did everything step by step as given a few posts above (and in hundreds of other places over the internet) and there's nothing that helped me.
When using this default settings generated by Xorg, I get message
"No valid modes found - check VertRefresh/HorizSync"I put the drives from that page already in binaries. When I try to compile (on configure) them by myself I get:
checking for XORG... configure: error: Package requirements (xorg-server >= 126.96.36.1991 xproto fontsproto xf86dgaproto ) were not met:Of course xorg-server is not available in repo (or is it?), because it's called xserver-xorg or something.
No package 'xorg-server' found
No package 'fontsproto' found
No package 'xf86dgaproto' found
I've got Asus K50C and will be happy for any help I can get. I would send you any output you want if that's gonna help. Just let me know what to start with. Write here or via pm, we can also talk on skype or some other IM (my other computer with kubuntu works perfect).
UPDATE: and yeah, I've tried cvt, gtf, counting the refresh rates, etc. and none worked for me. Maybe you've got something better. I know some people have managed to get this working. I've got readable tty so far.
Once it runs, I'll post my solution wherever I can to help others.
Thanks so much community for continuous help!
