I have the Elsa Winner 2000Pro/X running very well under both Linux
(RedHat 3.0.3) and Warp Connect.  For X, I just used the XF86config
program, which listed the 2000Pro/X in the card database.  The only
thing I added was the -bpp 16 in startx, to get 65k colors at my
resolution of 1024 X 768. No problems of any kind at all...  I believe
that 2MG, 4MB, and 8MB are all options (I have 2MB VRAM).

1. XF86Config problems (MAG 17H & Elsa Winner 2000PRO/X 2MB)

Hi *,

sorry bothering you with such a question, but I tried nearly everything
I can imagine to get X work on my machine.
I have a 486 board, Linux (REDHAT 3.0 distribution), a ELSA WINNER
with 2MB and a MAG 17H Monitor.

I've tried out all the settings described in



for my card and monitor, but none of those worked.
My monitor just decided to do nothing at all or simply
flickerd. I even tried utilities like vgaset and freq,
but ... (sniff). (Ok OK I have to admit, that while using
freq in my XF86config I managed it to get a 640X480 resolution
work with 56Hz (sniff sniff))

any suggestions??

thank's in advance
