Modem and video card installation on Linux
Posted on 2004-09-23
I installed Red Hat linux 9 (kernel version 2.4.20-8) on my Compaq Presario 700, using an Athlon 4, and I have some problems with some hardware.
-My modem is a Conexant Intl Hsfi V92 MiniPCi and is not detected by Linux (neither at bootup, nor by Network Device Control).
-My video card is a S3 Graphics Twister K. My resolution is stuck at 800x600, and the view is stretched to cover the whole screen, thus giving a very poor appearence. When I try a higher resolution, I get the message that I should restart the X Server for the changes to take place, but when I do nothing has changed.
Can these problems be corrected?
Thanks for the help
