First off, when I boot and view the error log, I see that the error log is seeing an added character "^M" Although this first concerned me, I came to feel that isn't important. Anyhow, no mater what output I enable or if I use auto, 0 or 1, it gives me the same error. I added the MM_X_DRIVER='intel_915' line to fix the "no supported video devices found"

Did you download, create or edit this file on a non-Linux computer. I aak because the ^M usually happens when the file is at some point manipulated on a Windows computer.

Windows indicates an <end_of_line> using a <carriage_return><line_feed> and Linux indicates an <end_of_line> using a <line_feed>. Therefore, Linux considers the <carriage_return> to be part of the line. The ^M is the same as <carriage_return>.

From the standpoint of the shell that interprets the minmyth.conf variables auto is not the same a auto^M.

Could you provide the output of

Code: Select all

lspci -mn
so that I can make sure that MiniMyth init recognizes your video?

Thanks, I was editing the config file on my 2000 Server. Editing it on my FC9 machine fixed that problem. Here is the output of that script.
