    Using the Knoppix XF86 config

    hello all!

    Long time since I have used Debian, actually it was Slink way back when. lol, yes I went back to "Dependency Hell" on Fedora/Redhat. Well, times have changed and I tried the new Sarge Installer RC1. Everything went without a hitch but I am still having graphic card issues . I was wondering if I could add my XF86 config file from Knoppix 3.4 to my HD Debian Sarge? Should I maybe chmod the directory /etc/x11 or whatever then add it from knoppix? Or maybe save it out to a website and do a wget right to the directory, again, whatever it is.

    P.S. Where is the XF86 config file...not many distrobutions have a hard time with my GFX card.

    Thanks in advance,
    Anthony Barboza

    Boot Knoppix
    Working under the assumption that you used /dev/hda1 to install to.......
    Code:
    mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/hda1 
    cp /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 /mnt/hda1/etc/X11
    reboot
    voila!
