XFree86 setup for HP Vectra PLEASE!

XFree86 setup for HP Vectra PLEASE!

Post by Stan Bro » Mon, 14 Oct 1996 04:00:00

        I have spent most of the weekend trying to come up with something
that will let me run X on a Vectra I just aquired.

        I can't be the only one in the world trying to do this would
some kind soul give me some clues, or weven a working config file.

        I would be very grateful!

1. Help with Xfree86 on HP Vectra XU 5/90


I have been trying, in vain, to get XFree86 up and running on a
system with the following configuration:

Machine: Oldish HP Vectra XU 5/90
Monitor: HP Ultra VGA 1280, Model 2807A
S3 864 graphics accelerator
SuperProbe output:
  First video: Super-VGA
        Chipset: S3 Vision864 (PCI Probed)
        Memory:  2048 Kbytes
        RAMDAC:  STG1702 15/16/24-bit DAC w/cursor,pixel-mux
                 (with 6-bit wide lookup tables (or in 6-bit mode))
                 (programmable for 6/8-bit wide lookup tables)

I cannot for the life of me get it to start in anything other
than VGA.  It pops out the messages:

(--) SVGA: There is no defined dot-clock matching mode "1024x768"

I've tried several different configurations as I run through
XF86Setup, but none seem to make any difference.

Yes, I've tried the S3 server as well.

   Is there anyone who can give me a good clue as to what I
   might be doing wrong?

   Anyone have a config file that they think might put an end to
   this misery?
