I have a Compaq Presario 4824, P233 II, 32 Meg, 6.5G HD, ATI 3D Rage Pro
AGP 2X Video (Chip: 215R3BUA22) on the Motherboard, and Compaq 1725
monitor. Having trouble getting Xserver to work properly using the
Mach64 server. I have Redhat Linux 5.0, and have updated the XFree86
Xserver S/W to 126.96.36.199.
Under XFree86 3.3.1 using 'xf86config', I always got a 'twm' screen with
3 menus when I click on the desktop - like 3 screens were overlapped. I
could drag the display over enough to see the xterm window, and could
execute commands in it. I did get the VG16 server to work properly (but
only by using Xconfigurator), and only for 640x480.
Under 188.8.131.52, I only get errors, this one in particular ->
System: '/usr/X11R6/lib/xkb/xkbcomp -w 1 -R/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xkb -xkm
-m us -em1 "The XKEYBOARD keymap compiler (xkbcomp) reports: "-emp ">"
eml "Errors from xkbcomp are not fatal to the Xserver" keymap/xfree86
twm: can't resolve symbol '__xstat'
Does the ATI Rage Pro have a RAMDAC? which is the best to choose? Will
it hurt anything (monitor or video) to try them all? Does anyone have
the dot clock settings?
