Re: X.Org and the Dell Optiplex GX270


i (and many others) have the same problem (with intels 855 chipset). the problem is the shared memory...and afaik that's kernel stuff and not anything X should handle.

look here for a patch:

that works fine for me (tested with both, 2.4.x and 2.6.x kernels).

Hi all,

Has anyone managed to get X working properly with the GX270?  I can't
get more than 640x480 on this box.

Looking at the logs, it seems as if X and the BIOS are having a problem
deciding how much memory is available -

Is this worth a bugzilla?

Cheers! (Relax...have a homebrew)
