While you are completely correct - anyone with a MWave Modem, or for
all purposes anything built using that lovely Dolphin DSP that
should've taken the world by storm but for IBM's incredible marketing
department - the MWave Modems are ***not*** a software modem like, for
instance, the click-on modems you see for Palm PCs (I've got a Nino
312 with one of 'em), which run using the CPU as a DSP.
The Dolphin chip is a field programmable gate array digital signal
processor. It loads a driver, basically, when initialising itself in
any of its permutations, either as modem or wave table sound card.
Great piece of engineering, and poo on IBM for, once again, showing
that bigger isn't necessarily better.
1. RH 5.0 and IBM Aptiva Display Problem
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.
