I have a Diamond Stealth 32 with 2Mb of ram, i can get linux to work with
test, but no graphics, X-windows just screws up my moniter- ei snow storm
time.   The moniter i am using is autoscan 15" noninterlaced upto 1280*1024
refresh upto 100Hz.

HELPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP!

I have a lot of trouble with my stealt 32 2 MB card too. First, you should not use the SVGa server: even in low res. it does
 not work with the ET4000 chip, at least not with Diamond. Instead, select the W32 server. Clocks 25.3 28.3 xx. xx is the
frequency you want to use for higher resolutions (depending on your monitor and resolution: see modedb.txt). Next, add
the ClockProg "..path..freq" 28.3 line. In the 'monitor section' you should have Modelines wich correspond to 28.3 and xx. ]
This 'should' work now to some extent: you can start experimenting from this point (like me). Problems:
graphic disturbance (lines tec.), screwing up text (during and after X), etc. Don't bother to try xrun (it does not help).
I hope it might work better for your monitor-card combination. If you solve one of the mentioned problems, please mail me.
I will continue trying.
Wim.

The SVGA server worked for me but the W32 server is quite a lot faster
(about 50%).

Get the modified freq program, dclkprog.tgz, from sunsite.unc.edu
in pub/Linux/X11/X-servers. With this you can specify as many extra
dotclocks as you want.

What is xrun? Your textmode problem stems from putting the wrong clock
on the ClockProg line - try 25 instead of 28.

Actually, with X11R6, you don't need a clock setting program.
Under the Device section of your card, replace the Clocks line
with:
        Clockchip  "icd2061a"
        Option     "nolinear"

That's all.  That should solve all clock problems on a Stealth card.
When I was setting up my system, I didn't realize that the line was
"Clockchip" instead of "clocks" which always screwed me up.
Make sure you have it right.

hi! I have a Diamond Stealth 32 Card with 2MB ram too. I missed the beginning
of this thread, and would appreciate it if you could tell me what to do.

I read in the INSTALL doc that linux did not support Diamond cards, so I was
content with the text mode.

Thanx in advance....

Hi!  

I would like to get cyrillic fonts to appear in any x-window (especially
an emacs window), on demand.  How can I do this?

thanks.

hi again! I got X windows working with W32, but it appears that the resolution
is only vga16 or mono. The X Windows works with both, but I wanted at least
800x600 with a min of 256 colours. the default settings for 800x600 require
a dot rate of 18. But the command X -probeonly shows that the card supports
22 xx xx... ...xx 28

Any workaround for this?
thanx

It seems like I am writing a progress log,but I found that there is a prog
called freq that fixes the frequency. On my card, it just shifted the screen
too the left. Also the mode does not change with  Cntrl-Alt-Keypad+ What am I
doing wrong? I have 3 Modelines and three sections with depth 8,15,16 and
res. of 640x480,800x600 with different clock speeds.
I have tried 3 X configs -> W32,SVGA,VGA16.
Any help is apreciated.

Regards
iru

John,

AFAIK, the "icd2061a" clockchip setting only applies to the S3 server
and hence S64 NOT S32 as discussed here.
