OAK Video-card: dipswitches and jumpers for mono display??

Post by Bauke Jan Dou » Mon, 10 May 1999 04:00:00

I wonder if there's anyone out here who might have some knowledge of
an old Oak video card.
I bought the card 2nd hand -- i.e.: without a technical manual.
It's an Oak OTI 037C, judging from what's printed on the chips.

This card has two female connectors.  One (15-pin) is for a VGA
display, and it works fine.  The other, a 9-pin connector, seems to be
for a monochrome display.

I have hooked up an old mono-display to this card, on the 9-pin slot,
but alas, all I'm looking at is a blank screen.

I'd appreciate any hints on the settings of dipswitches and jumpers
on this thingy for a mono-display.  There are four dipswithes, and two
(3-pin) jumpers.



1. XF86 Mono + Hercules Mono card ?

Hi All,

I have a 486DX/2-66 with a Hercules mono card running
Linux (kernel 2.0.30).  According to the packaging
(S.u.s.e. 5.0) it appears to support the card but
when I try to 'startx' it chucks out all the monitor
definitions and then aborts because it can't find
one that fits !.  XF86config has configured X to use
XF86mono.  XF86setup doesn't work because it wants
to use the 16 colour VGA X server.

Can anyone confirm or deny that this works and if it
does what the appropriate entries are.

The reason I'm asking is that some packages won't
install without X and I thought if it is supported
then you might as well see if it works.

Before anyone says that monitors are 10 a penny, they
are not here in Germany (they want $200 for a 14"
monitor!).  I have a Miro 20SD 2MB video card (S3 868)
but no monitor and am trying to use what hardware I have.
