Hi I am trying to fix my XF86Config ...........
I was wondering if somebody has suceeded in running xwin
with a Cirrus Logic CLGD5430/5434 chipset ........
Could you please post that !
thanx un advance
I just bought an Orchid Kelvin MPEG Vesa Local Bus accellerator board
today (VLB is hard to find, but Halted Specialties Company in Sunnyvale
has about a dozen left for $29.95!)
This board uses the Cirrus Logic CL-GD5434 chip.
I have no problem coming up in 640 by 480 mode using this entry in XF86Config:
HTimings 640 664 760 800
VTimings 480 491 493 525
This is the original entry as given in XF86Config.eg. But when I try to
use any other mode, such as 800 by 600 or 1024 by 768, no matter what I
enter in the file the server gives me the error message "There is no Mode
The one thing I know about the card is that it supports 75Hz vertical
refresh rate, and these resolutions:
The manual says nothing about dot clocks or timings.
It seems that getting XF86Config right is a very frequently asked
question. Perhaps someone should collect a web site with successful
config files for different cards and monitors, and write a faq about how
to get the file to be set up right.
Also, I looked, and at least on SlackWare there is no configxf86 program.
Where do I find it?
