PLEASE HELP: am stuck configing X for Diamond Stealth

Post by Tony Deri » Thu, 17 Oct 1996 04:00:00



Hi. Please help as I'm stuck in the configuration of X & I'm at wits
end to get any further. I have following hardware/software:
   1. 2.5 yr old AOC 14" monitor. specs: 1024x768, .28 dot pitch,
      30-50KHz horizontal sync, 50-90Hz vertical sync, 80MHz pixel rate.
   2. recently bought Diamond Stealth 64 SVGA DRAM card. 2MB DRAM.
   3. XFree 3.1.2.
   4. slackware 3.1.
   5. kernel 2.0.4.

I'm stuck in three places:
--------------------------------------------
1. I installed XF86_S3 server.  when I run "X -probeonly" I get (details
   of XF86Config file to be provided later) following error:
   ------------------------------------------------------------------
   XFree86 Version 3.1.2 / X Window System
   (protocol Version 11, revision 0, vendor release 6000)
   Operating System: Linux
   Configured drivers:
     S3: accelerated server for S3 graphics adaptors (Patchlevel 0)
         mmio_928, s3_generic
   (using VT number 7)

   XF86Config: /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/XF86Config
   (**) stands for supplied, (--) stands for probed/default values
   (**) Mouse: type: Microsoft, device: /dev/mouse, baudrate: 1200

   (**) FontPath set to "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc/"

    *** None of the configured devices were detected.***
   ------------------------------------------------------------------

2. Since I wasn't able to get past above problem, I installed XF86_SVGA
   server. modified XF86Config file accordingly (details appended later
   on) & though X starts now, output is unreadable no matter what I change
   "Modes" & "Virtual" to in the "Screen" section to.

3. I've read that there is a 3.1.2g version of XFree but I can't find it
   or know what I currently am running. I know my XFree is 3.1.2 but so
   far I can't find any XFree that has a letter appended to 3.1.2.
--------------------------------------------

thanks very much for your time.

1. help please i am stuck.

ok i have a ginipig pc i am working on and learning as i go along
its a:
 p3
 384mb ram
 600mhz
 11.1gb hd
 -----------------
ok i am trying to install solaris 10 i downloaded it recently.
6/16/06
i bruned it on 2 sets of cd's just to make sure everything went well. i
used nero 7
------------------
ok i put the first cd in and it goes through fast i just press f2 to
get to the next step.
i named the host: host and the domain: domain and the password: pass
------------------
i get to cd 2 i put it and it goes to solaris 10 install failsafe.
i try that and that also runs i go through the same way.
press f2 until it gets to this point
now maybe i am not pationt enough but this is what i get
___________
#
____________
and it does nothing i left it for at least 15 minutes like that and
then i typed reboot
and it restarted. i wasn't sure if it was doing anything.
now i went to solaris 10 setup or something like such. the the first
option from the three
1: the option i picked with the name i am not sure about
2: solaris 10 (fail safe)
3: windows
i also tried windows but it timed out so that dosen't work
and the fail safe gave me this #   message for 15 mins when i got tierd
and restarted
now with option one i got to a place where it asks to test me pluged in
items and i say ok. it freezes. or something it does nothing and i am
impationt and start the prossess over again.
now i pick bypass the test.
it bypasses and then asked me got a root password. as i said the only
password i spesified so far is pass so i tried pass. it didn't type. i
don't know why i checked the plugs and everything was good. i tried to
type again. nothing
i wait it says if i would like to skip that step.
()()() was it a good idea to do that.
anyway
i let it go
it starts to upload the packages part 2 and i wait.
(well this is where i am at now while waiting i typed all of the
above.)
ok i had done this yesterday as well it seems i didn't read it
yesterday well enought and i skipped cd3 ok now i am installing this.
but yesterday  went through the entire prossess and then it asked for
somepassword to log me in and that pissed me off and couzed me to write
this message.
any way the intire perpuse of this message is to ask

why did it ask for a password and why did it not let me log on?
please tell me what desision to make at each step to get this damb
thing to work.
i am willing to go in to a  message board a chat room or anyother fast
communication path to resolve my issue so let me know what i can do.
tks for any help at all sorry about any misspellings and grammer
errors.
if i seemed rood or anything please don't take it personaly i did not
mean to reflect any feeling or emotions.
