savage 4 refresh rate of more then 60 Hz with XFree 3.3.5 ?

Post by Harald van Pe » Sun, 14 Nov 1999 04:00:00



Hi,

I have a Creative Labs 3D Blaster Savage 4 (PCI).
I got it to work with the XFree86_SVGA 3.3.5 driver. Almost all
resolutions work, but for 1024x768 and up, there is no way to get a
refresh rate of at least 75 Hz. I have read here, that it should be
possible, but I have no idea how.

Has anybody managed this and if, how? Or can anybody who knows, give a
statement that it does not work?

For information:
There exists a driver from Cl which works fine up to a resolution of
1024x768 (8,16, 32Bit) and for almost all resolutions with 8 Bit.
(see www.soundblaster.com [graphics products] or search for
XF86_SAVAGE4-1.01) but my problem is, that it seems that it will not
work with libc 5 and I can't update our very big cluster here very fast.

Thanks
Harald

It is possible you have your monitor settings such that they are limiting
the H and V frequencies.  Look at the HorizSync and VertRefresh settings in
the "Monitor" section of XF86Config.

I have build the drivers on
members.xoom.com/s3dlinux/ (http)
with the Xkit, on slackware (a older one) (libc5).
1024x768 works fine with 8,16 and 32 Bit.
I still do not know how I get this with the XFree86_SVGA driver from
XFREE 3.3.5, but at the moment I am happy with the other ones.

1. How to change video refresh rate on Ultra 60?

Greetings!

Does anyone know how to change the refresh rate on an Ultra 60?
Currently, my monitor (model GDM 90W10)says it is set at 87.1kHz/ 70Hz.
Our environment is not the best in the world and we have a plethora of
EMF from power which causes horrible monitor flicker and makes the
monitor almost unusable.


Thanks!
Ron
