XF86 + PCI ET4000/W32P + SyncMaster 7G monitor???

XF86 + PCI ET4000/W32P + SyncMaster 7G monitor???

Post by Jong-Hyeon L » Sat, 24 Dec 1994 20:05:42


I have a problem with XFree86 on my system.
I'm using a PCI ET4000/W32P card and
Samsung SyncMaster 7G monitor (multiscan type).
But XFConfig does not operate well.
When I enter the command "startx", the screen is
darkened and nothing is displayed.

I'm running kernel 1.1.63 on my linux box with
Slackware 2.1.  I used server XF86_W32.

I don't know why it doesn't work well.
my configuartion error?
PCI ET4000W32P support of kernel?

Please help me.
I'm waiting for any suggestion.

Thank you in advance.

1. "Mouse Droppings", etc. using XF86 3.1, ET4000/w32p PCI

I am using XF86 3.1 with a MicroLabs Ultimate VGA Truecolor XLp PCI board.      
I have managed to get X-Windows up and running, but I consistently get
"mouse droppings" and similar minor video corruption. Twiddling Dot clock freq.
etc., has had no effect. This behavior occurs in all resolutions. I have tried using
both XF86_W32 (with all variations of the w32p chip) and XF86_SVGA. XF86_W32
produces the behavior mentioned above, and XF86_SVGA doesn't work at all, even
when the chipset is explicitly set to et4000w32p in XF86Config.

The card has a w32p rev D chip, 2MB RAM, and uses an AT&T 20C491 DAC.

Has anyone else seen this? Has this been fixed in XF386 3.1.1? I would be willing
to use the board as an ordinary, non-accelerated ET4000 board if this is the
only option.
