I have an Aptiva M70 which has Trident TGUI96xx video and 1MB.
I have an IBM P50 (15") monitor.
I've tried several video adapter configurations with mixed results but
never very good and after running configX and startx I get the following
for the different adapter selections:
IBM VGA - Clear screen but very few (2) colors and the xterm that pops
up is black foreground and background (i.e.
black on black)
Trident 8900 - Clear screen with more colors but VERY large images
(xterm, menu bar, etc.).
Generic VGA - Same results as IBM VGA above.
IBM 8514 Compatible - Wouldn't even load up after startx.
Generic trident - Control panel Icons are very clear but few colors (2)
and all characters on (xterm, configX
window, etc.) are sliced vertically
with hash lines. It is like the screen
is refreshing at only half the rate or
something but I tried various refresh
rates for the screen.
Any idea what the correct adapter and display configuration is or do I
need to modify what starts via startx ??
Any help appreciated.
