I'm a 'forever newbie', so I'll ask this related question:
Could his card option be put in, say, an executable bash script and then
dropped in his 'autostart' folder (assuming KDE usage, etc.)? I know we
are talking HARDWARE here, so I ask. I tried putting the below commands
in my .xinitrc and it didn't seem to work (yes, I run xdm from bootup on
this box). Somehow I feel the card needs the '+bs' _BEFORE_ X actually
starts, though ...
I use this method for the truetype font server 'xfstt' with SuSE 6.3.
The script is basically:
# Start the Truetype Server!
/usr/X11R6/bin/xset fp+ inet/127.0.0.1:7101
Is this ridiculous (i.e., a much geekier method?).
Thanks for bearing with this Yank,
