I just installed Linux. Of course it took more than 3 weeks to get to
installing X. Being a Linux expert by now I am very frustrated by not
getting more than 16 colours whilst using X.
I want at least as much colours as i saw when using windows. (because i
KNOW linux is better than windows)... but with the special Paradise Bali
32 drivers i got for windows it was easy to set things up. But Western
Digital (producer of this video card) doesn't seem to recognize the word
Bali at all, at least in my version of Linux. Of course i threw the
manual of the video card out of the window after 2 days of having a
computer. So now I don't know with which cards mine is compatible. (IF it
is_) I tried EVERY type of setup i could think of. But all i get is 8
times the image I imagined in one, or an unreadable flickering screen
when trying PVGA (paradise??) and the WD90CXX drivers.
it's not the frequencies of my monitor. i know they're right. (eh.. iguess)
all that can be wrong is the "CHIPSET" i use in Xf86config or the dotclocks.
When i start SuperProbe it returns me a sad message saying I have a
standard vga or unrecognized svga. when i use "generic" as a chipset for
XF86_SVGA all i get is 320x200x256.
So what do i do?
Summary: I have a "Paradise Bali 32 video card with 1024K ram."
i have Linux 1.2.3 and X11r6. I want to run in at least 256 colourmode.
If you can't help me directly than here's option #2.
WHAT'S THE EMAILADDRESS FOR ASKING DUMB QUESTIONS TO WESTERN DIGITAL?
If no-one helps me I'll remove the complete Linux-package and say to
everyone that it's not that great as i expected!
(of course i won't)
