I have a Tseng et4000/w32p based graphics adapter with 2MB RAM.
With the tools and drivers provided by the manufacturer, I can
get 64K colors at 1024x768, or 16M colors at 800x600, in Win95.
From this, it appears that the board can work at > 8bpp.
However, when I am in Linux, all attempts to get > 256 colors
fail. The SVGA server says "16bpp is not supported by this chipset."
And the W32 server just hangs in any mode.
I tried the latest W32 accel server, and that also hangs.
Latest SVGA server complains the same - "16bpp is not supported
by this chipset."
In an attempt to get this card to work, I upgraded my machine to
latest Linux (3.0.29), and latest Xfree86 (3.2.A), etc., but no luck!
Has anyone ever managed to get a et4000/w32p with 2MB RAM to yield
which Xfree86 is not able to do?Quote:> 256 colors? Or, is the manufacturer doing some tricks in Win95
Should I through my card in to a dust bin and buy a new card?
I just want to get this beast to give me 64K colors. Please help.
Thanks for your timeand help.
