W32, ICD2061A and XFree86 3.1.2E.

Post by Paul M Sargen » Sun, 19 May 1996 04:00:00



I've just downloaded Xfree86 3.1.2E (from http://www.xfree86.org/) and I've set
it up for my Diamond Stealth 32. With the new release it supports the ICD2061A
which is the clock chip in the Stealth, so now I can get rid of my external
clock-setting program.

The trouble is, after doing this I can't switch back to text mode after running
x-windows. Has anybody else had this problem? or even better Would anybody know
of a way of fixing it?

Just for completeness, here is the set-up in XFConfig of the Card.

Section "Device"
    Identifier  "Diamond Stealth 32"
    VendorName  "Diamond"
    BoardName   "Stealth 32 VLB"
    #VideoRam    2048
    Ramdac      "stg1700"
    Clockchip   "icd2061a"
    Dacspeed    128

Wohoooooooo! That's GREAT news for us Diamond users, and also
indicative of progress on the w32p..both of which I was given to
believe are pretty much dead ends.
Sorry I can't think of a solution for your problem offhand.. I wonder
though, is there any wild chance of 16bpp being supported in E
release, or not?
        Thanks,
                Paul

No, keep it around.

Yes, use "freq" to restore the dot-clock when you switch back. Until there
is some form of clock probing to find the textmode clock when X starts up or
switches back from vc, there is no way of telling what mode is being used
(especially if you use SVGATextMode) as the clock chip registers are write
only.

No. I don't know of anyone working on it.

1. Selective key repeat in XFree86 3.1.2E

I'm trying to configure XFree86 to disable key repeat on my
function keys (F1-F12), but not on any other keys.

Prior to making adjustments, xset reports:
    Keyboard Control:
      auto repeat:  on    key click percent:  0    LED mask:  00000000
      auto repeating keys:  00ffffffdffffbbf
                            fadfffffffdffdff
                            7f00000000000000
                            0000000000000000
      bell percent:  50    bell pitch:  400    bell duration:  100

Then I try:
xset -r 67 -r 68 -r 69 -r 70 -r 71 -r 72 -r 73 -r 74 -r 75 -r 76 -r 95
-r 96

Where the keycodes used are what "xmodmap -pke | grep F" reports as
belonging to the twelve function keys.

"xert q" then reports:
    Keyboard Control:
      auto repeat:  on    key click percent:  0    LED mask:  00000000
      auto repeating keys:  00ffffffdffffbbf
                            02c0ff7ffedffdff
                            7f00000000000000
                            0000000000000000
      bell percent:  50    bell pitch:  400    bell duration:  100

but, key repeat is still active on the twelve function keys!

Please help!
