no_block_write & Mach64 locks-up. fix?

Post by dsea.. » Sat, 10 Jun 1995 04:00:00



I got my Mach64 GPT 2MB VRam configured for X. It seems that my card
needs the "no_block_write" option, since Win/Warp both need it. X also
looks screwed w/o it. But about 98% of the time X locks up a few
seconds after it starts. If I remove the no_block_write it seems to
fix the problem of*, but then my screen is screwed.

So, is there a work around for this? I have Slackware 2.3 CD
distribution. Any suggstions would be greatly appreciated. BTW, this
happens in 1280x1024. I haven't tested lower resolutions.

1. Mach64 & Xfree @1280x1024 locks-up. help

I have a mach64 2MB VRam PCI running w/ slackware 2.3 (1.2.8 kernel).
I'm trying to  get XFree to run. I can start Xwindows, but a few
seconds after I get my desktop screen it locks up. This seems to
happen most in 1280x1024 mode (135Mhz).

Any suggestions on how to fix this would be greatly appreciated!
