Diamond Stealth 64 VRAM 2MB, S3-968

Post by Mikael Adolfsso » Fri, 09 Aug 1996 04:00:00



Hello,

My Diamond Stealth 64 VRAM 2MB S3-968, doesn't work properly in X -
using RedHat kernel 2.0.8. The picture wrap's 8 pixels to the left,
leaving a strange line on the right hand of the screen. Allthough my
mouse-pointer works as it should. So, not just the picture looks a bit
strange, I also have to click 8 pixels to the right of all objects.
Quite frustrating...

Does anyone know how to fix this?

  I've got the same card.  I'm also using Xfree 3.1.2.  I believe earlier
versions don't support the diamond cards as well, although I think it is
possible to get thme to.

  Anyway, if you are using v3.1.2 then xf86config should have this card as a
listed option.  In any case, here's a copy of the card section of my
XF86Config...

# Device configured by xf86config:

Section "Device"
    Identifier  "Video Card"
    VendorName  "Diamond"
    BoardName   "Stealth 64 VRAM"
    Option      "dac_8_bit"
    Option      "power_saver"
    #VideoRam    2048
   #Option "slow_vram"
# Use Option "nolinear" if the server doesn't start up correctly
# (this avoids the linear framebuffer probe). If that fails try
# option "nomemaccess".
#
# Refer to /usr/X11R6/lib/doc/README.S3, and the XF86_S3 man page.
    Ramdac      "bt485"
    Clockchip   "icd2061a"

 Use the Early_SC option in the Screen section of XF86Config on this card.
as in:

Section "Screen"
    Driver      "accel"
    Device      "Diamond Stealth 64 Video VRAM"
    Monitor     "My Monitor"
    Subsection "Display"
        Depth       8
        Modes       "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
        ViewPort    0 0
        Virtual     1024 768
        Early_SC    "*" 1
    EndSubsection
    Subsection "Display"
        Depth       16
        Modes       "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
        ViewPort    0 0
        Virtual     1024 768
        Early_SC    "*" 1
    EndSubsection
    Subsection "Display"
        Depth       32
        Modes       "800x600" "640x480"
        ViewPort    0 0
