I have a Packard Bell Legend 3550. It is a pentium 100MHz PC and it
comes with a Packard Bell 1512SL Monitor and a Cirrus Logic GD5430 video
card. It has Windows 95 preinstalled and I put Linux 1.2.12 on it.
I have configured XFree86 with only one problem that I have noticed: when
I run Windows 95 and center the root window via the horizontal and
vertical controls on the monitor front panel and then switch to Linux,
the root window is shifted to the right by about 20 pixels. Would the
cause of this be that I have not matched some XFree86 config parameters
with the exact values that Windows 95 is using? If this is so, what are
the parameters, and how do I determine the values that Windows 95 is
using? If it is not a configuration problem, is there any mechanism to
avoid this other than readjusting the monitor from the front panel
controls each time I switch operating systems?
I hope these are the right newsgroups to post to. If not, I would
appreciate it if someone would kindly point me in the right direction.
