i've serious problem to get XFree_AGX to work with my XGA-2.
- a PS/2E (9533-GB7) with an onboard XGA-2
- slackware 3.0.0, kernel 1.2.13, 12 MB RAM, Xfree 3.1.2
- i've read the README.agx
i can start and shutdown X, BUT the screen is corrupted:
- i don't get the steelblue background, everything's in b&w
- the screen is white for the upper maybe 400 pixel's
- the fvwm pager shows ghostimages over the full screenwidth
- the cursor is visible only in the upper (white) part of the
- if i clickright/left i get only a arrow <= cursor, no menu
- after startup, no screen updates happen, except cursor movement
any clue yet? who is the one described in the XF_AGX manuals
that tested X with a PS/2 50 ??
