VGA Via chrome 9 di ubuntu 8.10


Selama ini bukan rahasia lagi jika VGA VIA kurang begitu familiar jika dikaitkan dengan linux. Banyak sekali distro-distro linux yang tidak cocok dengan vga tersebut. Ini dikarenakan dari pihak VIA sendiri yang masih tertutup untuk para pengembang linux. Tapi belakangan VIA sudah mulai sadar bahwa pengguna linux yang semakin banyak, alhasil VIA membuat portal khusus linux sendiri. Dari pengalaman saya sendiri dengan VGA  VIA CHROME 9 HC IGP yang saya miliki, saya mengalami banyak kendala ketika proses instalasi distro-distro linux. Tetapi Setelah mencoba beberapa distro linux akhirnya saya menemukan juga distro yang cocok sama VGA saya yaitu ubuntu 8.10, walau harus merubah settingan xorg.conf nya dulu.

berikut settingan xorg.conf pada laptop saya :

Cara untuk mengkonfigurasinya yaitu :

1. Lakukan Boot dari Harddisk
2. Setelah muncul boot loader GRUB kemudian pilih yang recovery mode
3. Setelah itu akan muncul menu lagi, pilih Drop to root

Gunakan opsi nano untuk mengkonfigurasi file /etc/X11/xorg.conf
# nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Setelah itu baru masukkan konfigurasi yang diatas tadi.

4. Setelah setingan sesuai tekan Ctrl + O untuk menyimpan kemudian tekan Ctrl + X untuk keluar,
setelah itu gunakan perintah
# init 5

Tetapi dengan kemunculan versi ubuntu yang terbaru yaitu Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty), Komputer/Laptop dengan vga via kini bisa menikmati ubuntu dengan normal. Hal ini dikarenakan pada ubuntu 9.04 sudah disertakan driver via. Dengan begitu jangan ragu lagi untuk menggunakan ubuntu sebagai desktop anda.
