et4000/w32p problems...

Post by Anders Borna » Sat, 12 Oct 1996 04:00:00

I recently installed slackware 3.1.2 with 2.0.0 kernel.
I used to have the 3.0 distribution with 1.2.13 kernel, but since I
upgraded(?) I can't get X started.
I tried to download and install my old x-package, but I seams to lack my
old libraries.
Is there any known bugs in 3.1.2 regarding the Tseng Labs ET4000/W32p?
I don't want to reinstall everuthing again...

You need the beta version, 3.1.2G is current. The "standard" 3.1.2
doesn't work, at least not with my W32p (which may have something to
do with the DAC and / or clock).

I still have a problem that when entering one of the higher resolutions
that have "pixel multiplexing", sometimes the pixels are in the wrong
order... Switching with ctrl-alt-+ and - a couple of times fixes this.
I've reported this a couple of times using the beta report form, but
it hasn't been fixed, and I've never had *any* feedback. This sort of
discourages one from sending any more beta reports ;-(

1. ET4000/W32p problem again ...

    Is the ET4000/W32p card really supported?

    Since the XF86_W32 does not work for me at all, I use the XF86_SVGA
    server. Now, I noticed another problem ... the screen saver is WHITE
    instead of BLACK, I think I should really call that a screen killer
    instead, right?

    My config ... ASUS P54SP4 motherboard
                  P5 75Mhz with 32M ram
                  ViewTop PCI ET4000/W32p display card
                  Sony Multiscan 15sf monitor

    Which ET4000/W32p display card does XFree86 3.1.1 supports best?

    Help me out, please.
