Some probs with standard WD/paradise chips

Post by Gavan Mor » Wed, 28 Aug 1996 04:00:00

  I've just setup Linux (slackware 3.1) and I've got a problem when
setting up XFree86.

  Basically, it seems to be a problem finding a resolution that the monitor
can sync to.  I get about 6 seperate miniatures of the screen , and try
as I might with the ctrl-alt +/- keys I can't get a resolution to display.

   The modes are 800x600, 640x480 and 640x400 and the monitor is basically
a standard VGA/superVGA type (800x600 works fine in Win95).  The chipset
is a Western Digital/Paradise 90C30 type with 512K of RAM.  I used the
xf86config program to set up the configuration file.

   Can anyone suggest some possible frequency values I could place in the
config file?  I'm a bit puzzled as the WD chipset is pretty bog standard
so there should be few problems.  Even telling the XF86Config that I'm
using a standard VGA monitor (thus limiting to 640x400) results in a screen
that isn't syncing..




1. X on old Dell laptop with WD/Paradise 90C22 chipset

Is this possible or am I out of luck?

    Dell 325N laptop
    running Linux 1.2.13 (running fine)
    Output from SuperProbe:
        Chipset: WD/Paradise 90C22
        Memory: 256 K
        RAMDAC:  Generic 8-bit pseudo-color DAC
                 (with 6-bit wide lookup tables (or in 6-bit model))

Everything I have looked at so far seems to point at 90C22 chipset as
being unsupported.  Is this true?  Are there any hacks?

Thanks for all your help.
