I recently purchased a 2mb Mach64 PCI video card. After a little
trouble, I got it installed and operating in 16-bit 1024x768 mode.
Now, however, DPMS will load after 20 minutes; that's fine, since
my monitor supports it. If the screen is off for more than just a
few minutes, though, the screen will be 'flaky' when the computer
wakes up. (It will basically cover the entire screen up with
a checkerboard of white dots.) If a window is moved or something
changes, then that section of the screen will be fixed. However,
after DPMS runs (no matter how long) I can no longer restart the
X session or close it out normally (<ctrl><alt><bksp> works).
Any ideas? Is there a way to disable DPMS services? Redraw the
screen after awakening? The no reset/no exit doesn't bother me
that much... I am using Afterstep out of AnotherLevel under
RH5.1, and the Mach64 accelerated X server.
Thanks in advance for any information you might be able to provide.
