mystique and XFree86 3.3

Post by Michael Kell » Sat, 07 Jun 1997 04:00:00



I have attempted to run the XFree86 3.3 SVGA server which
supposedly has support for the Matrox Mystique in 8,16,24 bit
color and all the usual resolutions.  (I have the 4 Mb version
of the card).  I do get a screen but it is only 320x200, not the
800x600 or 1024x768 that I specified in the XF86config file, and
it behaves strangely if I try to move the mouse across the screen.
I'm quite sure most of the XF86config ie. Monitors, etc is OK
as it worked with my previous card.  The Server section of my file is
quite generic (I have tried 640x480, 800X600, and 1024x768 modes in
8 and 16 bit color).

Anyone else out there had better luck.  If so could you email
em your XF86Config?

Thanks,

Mike Kelly

Did you run XF86Setup? I did and it generated a config file which lets me run
quite nicely at 1600x1200 and resolutions beneath with my Mystique.

However, I do have one problem. The Control-Alt-Plus/Minus key combinations to
switch screen resolutions don't work properly. When I try to switch down from
the default resolution, it switches into 320x200. Anyone?

Just as you, I used XF86Setup and am really pleased with the performance
of the new Mystique driver.  My screen resolution switching works fine.
Check the order of the modes in your XF86Config file to make sure they
are in the order you want them to be selected.  I ran xvidtune, using
the "show" button after each setting - don't know if that makes a
difference.

A copy of my XF86Config is attached to the e-mail copy of this.

Thanks Dave and Gerry.  I too now have the SVGA driver working with
the mystique after running XF86Setup.  Mystique owners- use the
XF86Setup program rather than trying to write the XF86Config by hand!

mystique and XFree86 3.3

Post by Arthur Corlis » Mon, 09 Jun 1997 04:00:00


For GP sake, I used the Setup prog, only to have a crash upon launching X.
However, using xf86config, I got everything working fine.  Used vi to
change the order of resolutions available, and I'm as happy as. . . well,
you know :-)

I have set up a few Xwindow vga16 servers before (probably partly by luck!),
then obtained the Matrox Mystique 4mg card, and eagerly downloaded XFree86
3.3. Yet, XF86Setup caused a segmentation fault on my P5/100-48mg's (running
Slackware '96 with a 17mg swap).

I'm still too new with Linux to have any concrete idea why, and to really
know what to look for. I'm reasonably sure I downloaded all the necessary
files, and I followed all the texts to the letter.

ANY ideas appreciated!
A CC:'d reply to my mailbox would also be appreciated.

Thanks, anyone, in advance!
Cluelessly yours,
Frank Zamenski
