Help with xf86config! (fwd)

Post by Mashiach Yoge » Fri, 12 Apr 1996 04:00:00

Hi !

I'm having problems installing X on my 486 DX2 66MHz notebook computer.

It's got a Cirrus Logic 65540/545 VGA card (Which isn't on the list of
cards inside xf86config) and an HITACHI 800*600 Dual-Scan monitor (Which
I have no idea what are his specifications, or syncs).

I've tried tens of different configurations, and none of them worked, not
even with 16 colors...
When I write runx/startx the screen becomes blank and the computer gets
stuck or (With different comnfigurations) it writes "Fatal Server error: No
valid modes found. xinit: No such file or directory (errno 2): Unexpected
signal 13" (What does it mean?!)

Please, if you've got any ideas, please, please help...




1. Here is XF86Config for Stealth 64 VRAM (fwd)

I've included the device section of my XF86Config here as a public service
for anyone who has had trouble getting this or a similar card to work with
XFree86 3.1.2.

Also, if anyone has any suggestions for improvements let me know.  This
setup gives me all the resolution/color combinations I need, but it's a
little slower than I had expected (this card really seems to fly with
Windows NT 3.51).  I don't really know what the "diamond" and "dac_8bit"
options do as they seem to be unnecessary to get it to work.  When not
specified, XFree detects the "mmio_928" chipset.  I know that "mmio"
stands for memory mapped I/O and I *think* this is better than
"s3_generic" (the only other choice of chipset for the XF86_S3 server) but
I am not sure... Any comments...?
