I am having trouble wth setting this card up to a decent configuration
I can get it to run with the , 'default vga " video setting of 320x200
but have all kinds of trouble when trying to set it for any decent
higher resolution timings . The best I have gotten so far , is X
running with 3x - horz - foldover . or double fold-over.
I am using a Princeton Ultra 14 ni Monitor with
Vertical frequency range - 50 - 90 hz .
Horiz frequencies of - 31.5 , 35.5 , 38 , and 48 khz.
The video card , (STB Horizon 64 PCI) with 1mb Dram installed now .
it has 2 sockets to upgrade it to 2 mb Dram .
It can do 1024x768x256 , 800x600x256 , 640x480x256 , all at True color
mode , In Win 95 , but I am new to linux and would really like to get
this puppy to run good in my linux setup .I'd be happy with the 800 ,
460 ,& 400 modes , so I can study the linux concepts in X-windows .
XF86Setup doesn't work probably cause my monitor has discrete single
horzizontal frequencies listed .
keeps telling me that cant connect to the X - Server .
So I have had to hand - edit with XF86Config .
I have been juggling the mode - lines / Trying variations on the
existing timings for vesta standards , keep Rolling ,vertical , and
what looks like Too fast horizontal frequencies .
Is Linux just for Engineers , and Technicians to Tweak around with
, or Is there a way for , 'Ordinary Mortals to get some support for a
video card that is only a year or two old ? .
STB Horizon 64 PCI , There must be some info somewhere .
I have looked in the Sunsite LDP etc. and , /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/Docs .
any help is of course greatly appreciated .
