XF86Config for Cirrus Logic CL-GD5434

Hi
I am a Linux beginner who happened to have a monitor Presario-140
from COMPAQ and is having a hard time trying to get X Windows to
work. So if there is anyone with a working copy of XF86Config and
wouldn't mind sharing it, I would really appreciate it if you can
send me a copy of it. Some technical specifications are:
   Video Adapter Type: XGA
       Manufacturer  : Cirrus
      Display Type   : VGA Color
        Video Mode   : 3
     Number of Columns : 80
     Number of Rows    : 25
 Video BIOS Version : CL-DG543x PCI VGA Version 1.20
       VESA Version : 1.20
  VESA OEM Name : Cirrus Logic GD-54xx VGA
  Secondary Adapter : VGA

Thans in advance for your help
                               Tony.

Here is my XF86Config file for a Local Bus 2Mb 5434 based video card (Orchid
Kelvin).

You will most probably need to change the 'membase' address for your video
card.

Have you read the PCI HOWTO?

XF86Config for Cirrus Logic CL-GD5434

Post by Re » Sat, 12 Aug 1995 04:00:00


I just came across something on gopher I think several
of you might be interested in.

There is a supposedly updated X server for the Cirrus boards
at:  ftp.izf.tno.nl   I don't know if it works or even if
it is an actual server because I haven't tried it yet.
In fact I won't get a chance until Monday.  Anyway, if
some of you have been having the same kind of problems
I have, it may be useful.  I hate to post this without
finding out if it works, but I felt it might save some
one considerable grief.
