Hi

I have never seen that! I have a stealth 3240 with 2 Meg VRAM and I am
using it in 1024x768 and it goes all the way up to 1600x1200 I think
with 4 MegVRAM.

Hi,

I am in the market for a new PCI video card.  I was wondering if anybody
could tell me if the Diamond Stealth 64 (2Mb VRAM) will support modes
greater than 640x480.  Reading the readme files supplied with XFree86-3.1.2
it seems it will if we use an S3 server.  But the sentiment in this news group
seems to point to the fact that it won't, or it will but in certain wierd
configurations.

Thanks in Advance
Dima

>Dima,

   My ASUS board based 120MHz P5 with PCI has a Diamond Stealth64 (2MB VRAM)
display card.  It has been driving a NEC XE17 and now is displaying on a
Viewsonic V21PS at 1024x768x256.  If I set the modeline to 1280x1024 the display
has a very anoying flicker due to low screen update rate.  The card is quite
good up to 1024x768.

The problem is with your modeline, not the card.  If you want to get rid
of the flicker, adjust your modeline to take advantage of the greater
bandwidth of your new monitor.  You might try something like


Modeline "1280x1024"  130    1280 1336 1440 1616  1024 1027 1030 1056

That should be easily within spec for a V21PS, and you shouldn't notice a
flicker with a 76Hz refresh.  IMHO, 1152x864 is a better choice, though.
With that, you can get 16bpp out of 2MB of RAM.  Try


Modeline "1152x864"    110    1152 1200 1392 1448   864  870  872  907

Of course, use xvidtune to make the necessary adjustments to match your
monitor.

I'm currently using a Diamond Stealth 64 Video Vram 3200 (2MB) in 1024x768
in 65,536 color mode.

H.CROSS

Remember to use the Early_SC option in the Screens section of the
XF86Config if you use this card otherwise you'll get screen wrap.

I had LOADS of grief with my Diamond Steath 64 VRAM (2MB) - then I got
a hold of Xfree 3.1.2 and it burst into life at all resolutions.
My only remaining problem is a series of small black lines on screen.
Any ideas appreciated...

Re: Resolution of a Diamond Stealth 64 (2Mb VRAM) & XFree86:

Modes       "640x480" "800x600" "1024x768" "1024x768i" "1280x1024"

These are the main modes supported at 8 bit/pix

All but the higest mode is also supported at 16 and 24 bpp.

I normally use 16 bpp at 1024x768 interlaced.  The card supports modes
higher than my monitor's capabilities.

1. Setting up Diamond Stealth 64 Video (2MB VRAM) under XF3.1.2.

Hi all,

Well after blowing up my old card quite successfully I went out and bought
a new card.  I got a good price on a Diamond Stealth 64 Video with 2MB VRAM.

I've ftped down XFree3.1.2, and installed that correctly.  I can get
the card working at 640x480, and 800x600, yet 1024x768 leaves me
in a spin....

Wondering if anyone has a working XConfig file I can beg/borrow/steal?
Or even some pointers to look out for.  I'm using a no-frills SVGA
monitor, that has had the card firing at 1280X1024 under Windows3.11.
I presume I should be able to match this under XF3.1.2.  

NB: I can't keep up with the traffic of these groups, however I will
post a summary.

Regards,

Matt.
