[Fwd: Re: X fails in 4.6 for Toshiba Satellite 460CDX (fwd)]

beasley-3
I reported the X problem last summer with the C&T 65555 chipset.
I was not able to find a solution that would work with the 4.6
release, but more recent snapshots (including 12/12/2009) seem
to work well on my ancient hardware. I'm able to get good video
by just entering "startx" from a user account's command line.

Can you try a recent snapshot ? There have been some fixes in the
chips driver since last july that didn't make it into 4.6.
