XF86Config for TNT2 Users

Post by Melvin Ta » Mon, 31 May 1999 04:00:00



Lucky for me, I managed to get X working with the little Linux skills I
have.

The easy way:
1) In the video cards device section of XF86Config, add the following
line:  Chipset  "RivaTNT".
2) In the screen section for your video card, change "accel" to "svga".
3)  You're done.

The really easy way:
If you don't know what the heck I just did, then refer to the attached
XF86Config or replace your version with mine.  REMEMBER: T o   b a c k
u p   y o u r s   f i r s t .

Put the given XF86Config file in  /etc/X11/

[ XF86Config 14K ]

As a matter of interest,
how did you then get the XF86Config file?
Eg how did you get the generic Modelines?
As far as I can see, Xconfigurator does not read the current XF86Config,
so will never know of your Chipset setting.

I finished up with much the same XF86Config as you,
but I had to put it together by hand.

1. XF86Config for TNT2 Users

Lucky for me, I managed to get X working with the little Linux skills I
have.

The easy way:
1) In the video cards device section of XF86Config, add the following
line:  Chipset  "RivaTNT".
2) In the screen section for your video card, change "accel" to "svga".
3)  You're done.

The really easy way:
If you don't know what the heck I just did, then refer to the attached
XF86Config or replace your version with mine.  REMEMBER: T o   b a c k
u p   y o u r s   f i r s t .

Put the given XF86Config file in  /etc/X11/

Oh yeah, I have a Diamond Viper card.
