I'm new to Linux world, trying to set up Fedora FC6 on a PIII system with Matrox G400. I seem to have a driver problem at X-server. X-server starts and KDE runs just fine. But when I try to play a movie with MPlayer or VLC, both players crash with an error:
- Code: Select all
X11 error: BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)?,?% 1 0
By an advice from a colleague, I figured out that changing a "Driver" from "mga" to "vesa" in xorg.conf would fix the problem. Therefore I assume the mga driver is somehow not correct. I tried to install the latest 4.4.2 build, but it didn't change the situation at all - same error. I'm sure I'm doing something wrong, but I can figure out what it is exactly...
My xorg.conf file is quite short:
# Xorg configuration created by pyxf86config
Identifier "Default Layout"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
Option "XkbLayout" "us"
Viewport 0 0
And the Xorg.0.log is attached.
Can you point me to a driver set-up guide or something similar? I tried to look on this site and also in Google but it looks like noone has a problem like this or maybe people just ask their quiestions in completely different way...
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
