Re: OmniBook XE2-linux

To set-up the X server you need to create a /etc/X11/XFree86-4 file.

You can use dexter or xf86cfg for this !

It's also time for you to read the docs .
www.linuxdocs.com

or just type man XFree86

Setting up X on a laptop is challenging!
Your problem is addressed here: http://www.linuxia.de/omnibook-xe2.en.html
The issue you are experiencing is that XFree86 4.0 doesn't support your chipset. Use v.3.3.6 and you should be alright.

(I experienced simular problems with another manufacturer's laptop when I tried to set up Linux -- never did get the thing done before I had to return it...)
