Resolution XFree86 3.3

Resolution XFree86 3.3

Post by James Tappi » Tue, 22 Jul 1997 04:00:00

I am running a system with a VideoLogic GrafixStar 600 card (ET6000
based) and a Proview PV-772IM 17" monitor which has a horizontal sync
range 30-70kHz and a vertical sync range 50-110.

In 24 bits per pixel mode W95 and XFree86 v3.2 (W32 driver) both support
1024x768, but after upgrading to 3.3 (SVGA server) [mainly to get the
1156x864 resolution in the lower bpp modes - I mostly use 16bpp] I find
that it won't go better than 800x600 in 24 bpp mode [up to 1200x1024 is
supported in both 8 & 16 bit modes -- albeit only at about 60Hz].

Is there any way around this?

1. Screen Resolutions under XFree 3.3

I've just installed RedHat 4.2 and upgraded to XFree86 ver. 3.3 (using a
matrox mystique card with 2M of mem).  Not matter what I do or how I set
it up (I keep running the setup and trying different things. I seem to
always be in 640x480 at 16 colors...  

How / Where / whatthe / do I do?

I want to be able to get up 1024 x 768 with as many colors as possible,
Is there a run-time config?  Do I have to set that up before I start X?
