XFree86 3.1.2B and ARK2000 Cannot get all modes - HELP

Post by Michael Wright ED » Sat, 13 Jan 1996 04:00:00

Before making a report to the working group I thought I would seek help here first.

I have the 3.1.2B version and can get the larger video modes without booting Windows
first, but I have had a couple of problems.

First my configuration:

Micron Millenia Plus 133MHz Pentium
32MB of RAM
Diamond Stealth64 Video 2001 (DRAM)
ViewSonic 21PS

I can get the 800x600 and 1024x768 modes just fine.
I cannot get the 640x480 mode at all.
The 1280x1024 mode is interlaced.

I realize that some of this is forced by the modelines and the driver says that 80 MHz
is the limit for my card (forcing the interlaced mode).

I do not have a great deal of time to spend mucking around with modelines and would
appreciate any help in getting all of this up and working.

I would be willing to post a summary if anyone wants it.

Thanks, Michael

1. XFree86 3.1.2B -- effect on Diamond Stealth ARK2000?

I downloaded the new SVGA server, and saw a reference to a clock-chip
bug fix for the ARK2000/ICS5342 combo.  I ran the server, saw no change
except for what looks like a significant speed increase.  800x600 is
still my limit, despite my 90Mhz monitor.

Any other ARK2000 users out there who have been able to get 1024x768 going?
