XFree86 confusion and much more
Posted 17 February 2007 - 12:28 PM
And I am having problems with XFree86 recognizing my graphics card, it's like a i945 something or other.
PS. trying to run Debian, if it helps.
Further, is the Intel Core 2 Duo IA64? Because I keep downloading the IA64 ISO's and they never fucking boot
I implore you, please help ME!!!

XOrg is a fork of XFree86, and is where all the new development is happening. XFree86 is (I think) still being maintained, but most of the developers moved over to XOrg. If XOrg is available and you have a newer chipset (and/or want the newer features of XOrg), use XOrg. For older chipsets, XFree86 will still work fine.

Also just a personal opinion, if you are on a desktop box, then try using ubuntu instead of debian. Its essentially debian without any of the hassle.

Sorry I couldn't post back a little sooner, went to the movies.
But yeah, I thought that XOrg was newer.
PS. Found out some scary shit today go here [url="http://www.freedomto...ofascism.com/"]
I'm looking into the subject more closely because I vowed never to take information from one side, but this is extremely compelling.
To return from that digression; Thank you!!
