Mach64 Prob's

Mach64 Prob's

Thanks for the previous replys.
I got X working with the standard VGA 16 color
but still can't get the ATIMach64 server running.
When I do a startx it runs through some stuff then
the screen goes black and it hangs completely. I have
a 'Micro-Electronics SVGA 15" F562DU' flatscreen monitor. After
some digging on the web I found that it has a 65 Khz
horizonal rate and a 90 hz. vertical rate. I entered these
numbers in the xf86config file and set it up for the
ATIMach64 server but got the same results. Does anyone
have a xf86config file for the ATIMach64 server that they
can post or email me?



1. XDM/X no '@' sign, sendmail daemon probs, v1.1.45 probs

Well, I have two problems, totally unrelated, that I desperately need
help for (and a third, now that I think of it).

First and most important: Sendmail
Running Slackware 2.0.1 and using the sendmail that came with it to do
mail-hub duties, sendmail hangs when running as a daemon.  We don't
have any problems with it running from 'inetd,' but we'd obviously
like to get away from doing that.


Sendmail will pick up if one telnet's to the smtp socket on the
subject machine.  Usually (but not always), it will print the banner.
The first few times, it will even respond to a 'help' command, a 'mail
to:' command, whatever.  After that, it just stops responding.  We put
it in 'inetd.conf' to get mail running, and we've got our
'' file working the way we want it, but we'd really like to
run it as a daemon.  Any clues?

Second and also important: X from XDM
When I set things up (using the default entries in the 'inittab' file)
to start XDM on boot, all goes well, EXCEPT:
When I start an X-term in my session (either as root or myself, if it
matters), most things work as one would expect.  One glaring ommission

before it can even be written into the .bash_history file.  Makes it

When I run X using startx from a console session, everything works
fine.  HELP!

Third and much less important: kernel 1.1.45 with ytalk and pppd
I built a 1.1.45 kernel (so I could play X-Doom!) and it mostly works
fine, but there are a couple of things I'm having trouble with.
First, 'pppd' seems to be broken.  I went to all this trouble to get
ppp-on and ppp-off scripts working, and now they won't do much of
anything.  *grumble*

Furthermore, when I'm dip/slip'ed in, and try ytalk, it breaks after
only a few characters.  I 'suspect' that these two are related.  I
haven't found any other problems, but then, I've only had that kernel
for 18 hours, and I wasted six of them sleeping.

Any help gratefully (and I hope graciously) accepted.
