Got Viper 770 to work with X-Windows, but still need mouse HELP..!!

Post by JMNugen » Thu, 12 Aug 1999 04:00:00



First the good news.....

To get the Viper 770 to work I downloaded the following file from NVidia's
website

Riva-X-GLX-1.0-glibc-i386-dyn.tar.gz

.........gunzip and then tar the file.....run the script  " ./riva_install
".....once that finishes,..go back and run XF86Setup

For a "Card"...I choose "Riva TNT"......8bpp,.......640X480.....and it seems
to work.......

...EXCEPT....my mouse really freaks out....it just moves to the upper right
corner and doesnt respond....

Anyone know how to get a Microsoft Intellimouse (ps2) to work under these
conditions....

Jason,

I had the same experience. I choose the IMPS/2 protocol setting offered in
the XFree86Setup and it seemed to work for me. Thanks for the tip on the
V770.

1. Diamond Viper 770 Ultra and Viper II drivers

On Thu, 01 Jun 2000 02:52:31 GMT, Joe

shouted forth into the ether:

1:  Start Xconfigurator, if the card doesn't get autodetected, tell it to
use the SVGA server and specify the amount of video RAM the card has.  
Worked for me with a Diamond Viper 770 and RH 6.1 [0], should work for the
Ultra unless they've b0rken the chipset bits something awful (IIRC both
the normal 770 and the Ultra use the TNT2 chipset.  If I'm worng and the
Ultra uses some sort of modified GeForce chipset, which happens
frequently, you may have to upgrade your Xfree86 or use 6.2.  Upgrade
directions for getting Xfree 3.3.6 are at
http://xfree86.org/3.3.6/RELNOTES.html
http://www-personal.umich.edu/~mhgraham/UpgradeXfree.html )

2:  See above.

[0] Xconfigurator, and RedHat in general, had a lot more trouble with this
than SuSE 6.x and SaX did.  *shrug*
