I set up Arch on quite a few machines so far, but now I am having a real hard time getting xorg.conf to work. I have an on board video card described as follow by hwd -s :
which is installed.
I generated the xorg.conf file with hwd -xa and tried all kind of settings based on other installations I have on other machines.
I then gave up by installing Suse on the machine in question, which in turn gave me reasonable resolution. But I wanted to have Arch !! So I took the xorg.conf file generated through Suse, re-installed Arch and used that famous file. That did not work, I was back to square one.
Can someone telle me what I am doing wrong ??
Gnaaaaa Solved my problem.
BIOS problem. I had to increase the memory allocated. The setting in the BIOS was ridiculously low :-D
