Q. Howto setup Permedia 2v card and 3DLabs server with XF86Setup?

Post by John L. Spe » Fri, 14 May 1999 04:00:00

I have XFree and the 3DLabs server installed from the COL 2.2
installation CD.  The 3DLabs server indicates that it supports the
Permedia 2 card, but no Permedia cards are actually listed inside
XF86Setup.  After experimenting with some of the Elsa Gloria card
settings, I decided not to pick a card.  I setup the monitor settings,
picked 3DLabs under server for the detailed setup, and picked done.  I
then played around with xvidtune for awhile to cleanup the modes a bit.
Some modes (mostly low res ones) are bowed but I can run X and KDE.  Is
there a better way to do this?  If the Permedia card were listed would
I get better performance/mode tuning by picking it from the list?

Auf Arbeit nutze ich eine DIGITAL Workstation mit onboard 3DLabs
Permedia 2v Grafikchip. Leider bekomme ich unter X11 Version 4 (KDE
2.xx, SuSE 7.2 bzw. 7.3)  bei Verwendung des glint-Treibers mie 16bit
und 1280x1024 Streifen und falsche Farbmuster an den Titel- und
Menleisten sowie an den Scrollbalken. Gibt es generelle Probleme mit
onboard Grafikcontrollern dieses Typs? Was kann ich tun?

At work I use a DIGITAL workstation with onboard 3DLabs Permedia 2v
Video controller. Unfortunately I get in X11 Version 4 (KDE 2.xx, SuSE
7.2 respective 7.3) when I use the glint driver with 16 bit and
1280x1024 stripes and false colour patterns at the titlebars menubards
and scrollbars. Are there general problems with onboard Video
controllers of this type? What can I do?
