HELP me CONFIG X for ASUS S3 864 &KFC monitor!

Post by Pasi Niemin » Wed, 08 Mar 1995 02:25:24

So . I have problems producing acceptable XF86Config file.

I changed recently to newer version of XF86_S3 driver (3.1.1 )
and the little I had working , doesn't anymore.

The card is 1M ASUS S3 vision 864 PCI with s3sdac and monitor
KFC 15" multisync something with 80Mhz bandwidth
(little lcd display in front). with the older driver
 I managed to get some decent 800x600 and 900x700
type of gfx-modes working. But with 1024x768 the refresh rate would
drop to or below 60hz .

There is a programmable clock in this card , right?
older driver detected maximum dotclock to be 130Mhz, this new driver
says max dotclock is 110Mhz. Who do I believe?

I tried to use higher dotclocks to get better refresh rate for 1024x768
but it seemed that highest possible value that worked was 67.5.
If I defined value higher than that (68+), all I got was crazy
 horizontal lines and terrible sounding whistle from the monitor.

What goes wrong? The monitor should work up to 80Mhz
and card even above right?
I know it can do 1024x768NI 75Hz in Windows.

now with the newer driver only 640x480 mode works anymore
with exactly same config file.

If You have a working config file for a system similar to mine ,
or good idea how to make it work. I would be very interested.

Also the bios supported green Pc screen/cpu  power saving doesn't
work under linux. How can I get power saving?
with the olde driver , the option power_saver didn't have any effect.

Help appreciated.

I have an IBM 14V monitor and an S3 864 chip and I am not satisfied with
the XF86Config that I have since I do not have 800x600.  If you can send
me the config or give me info, I would greatly appreciate it.
