official site of VIA, and then compiled it following the instruction. But the result was that it couldn't work.
If it doesn't work, then remove/uninstall it, since it may interfere with the other graphics software.
Today, I found the Openchrome project and try to use the driver. After I changed the device section of /etc/X11/xorg.conf to
and rebooted the system, it prompted something like fail to start X server.
Who can help me,please? I don't want to work in 800*600 resolution.
Thanks in advance!
Why? The openchrome driver is available from the standard fedora repos. If you installed from software obtained at the OpenChrome website, which it sounds like you did, it's likely that: (A) it isn't configured properly, and/or (B) it blew away, damaged, or is interfering with the files from the "stock" openchrome package and/or via driver that is already installed. Remove/erase/uninstall it. Then verify that the existing software has not been damaged. While you're at it, you may want to just re-install with F8 or (preferably) F9, since F7 is now past end-of-life, and there will be no further updates.
After you clean up the mess, post/attach copies of:
