Help! problem with ATI-Mach64 and XFree86

Post by Verri Stefa » Sat, 06 Jan 1996 04:00:00

Hello Word
I am a Linux user and for Christmas I have buy a new
Computer with this hardware:
- Intel Pentium processor 100 MHz
- ATI-Mach64 PCI (not Local Bus) Video adapter
- Monitor SAMSUNG SyncMaster 15Gli

Immediately, I have installed Linux from Infomagic CD-ROM (August 95)
but, after a lot of useless attempts, I haven't been able to make work
the X-Windows interface.

I have installed the X-Server for Mach64 and I have created my XF86Config
with the program "xf86config". When I run "X -probeonly" it seems that
there isn't errors even if only 2 clocks are autodetected (my video adapter
supports about 32 clocks). Verified that, I have directly inserted the
clocks of my ATI Mach64 in the XF86Config file but it has been useless.

When I run "X -probeonly" there isn't any problem but when I start X-Windows
with "startx" my computer seems to die and, to take back "him" to the life,
is necessary to make a reboot.

If I check my video adapter with "Superprobe" the response is:
ATI 88800
Memory 1024
RAMDAC ATI 68830 15/16 bit
HiColor DAC.

Anyone can help me ?
The PCI ATI-Mach 64 are supported from Linux?
Have anyone had this problem and how have he resolved that?
Any suggestion are needed.

Thanks in advance.

1. ATI Mach64 PCIQ: ATI Mach64 PCI, Xwindow problems ?

You should install XFree86 3.1.  Its Mono, VGA16 and SVGA servers include
(unaccelerated) support for Mach64's.  For an accelerated server, you'll
have to wait until XFree86 >=3.2.
