Also, on, in the file /pub/MIRRORS, I think, you can
find a list of all sites which mirror Xfree86. Most (but not all) of
these are carrying 3.1.2D.

first of all, I answer to this: when starting X use
 startx -- -bpp 16
to give to X the option: no fuss with switching consoles...

( I have Pentium 75, PCI 1Meg card, Linux 1.2.13 from Slackware 3.0.0)

 I have downloaded the following files to :



00README.FIRST BetaReport FILES Features.html Info.html
Install.html RELNOTES SUMS.md5 X312BSVGA.tar
X312Bupd.tar MIRRORS




This is all is needed for running with the Trident card
with Linux Elf (if you have already  XFree 3.1.2 on )
Everybody can login as anonymous
( I did this because as of yesterday none of the usual mirrors had 3.1.2D)

 the server works fine to me , but... the

Modeline "1024x768"    65    1024 1032 1176 1344   768  771  777  806 -hsync

makes my screen behave strangely:  I see strange small "waves" that move some
left or right some of the lines of the screen , appearing and disapperaring
Has anyone seen this? I tried playing with xvidtune, no result.

I am currently using

Modeline "1024x768i"    44.9  1024 1048 1208 1264   768  776  784  817

that works fine with this monitor.


and what about 1280x1024 ? the manual of the card says that this should be
possible (with 16 colors, since I just have 1meg); what should I do?

as always, many many thanks to XFree 86!!!!

1. Trident 9440/3.1.2D

Well, I got a beautiful display out of the card, but whenever I call up an
xterm (regardless of the window manager), I get the following error:

xterm:  can't resolve symbol 'XkbLooupKeySym'
X connection to :0.0 brown (explict kill or server shutdown)

I have tried this with several different keyboard configs with no luck.
I suspect that I have a missing library or something is not linked correctly?

If anyone has any suggestions, I would be most grateful.  Much Thanks!
