Help: XF86Config for ATI Mach64 PCI & MAG DX17F

Post by Carl-Eric Henni » Sun, 20 Nov 1994 23:39:00



I've created XF86Configs for both Trident cards and S3 cards, but this time
nothing seems to work! The screen just goes blank and the only thing that
works is Ctrl+Alt+Del... :-(

Can someone help me with a XF86Config that works with the ATI Mach64?
My card is a ATI Graphics Ultra Pro Mach64 PCI with 2MB.

Thanks in advance.

which driver are you trying to use?
Mach64 isn't supported, so you have to use XF86_SVGA!
did you check the clock values?

In the Hardware-HOWTO it says that work is in progress with support for the Mach64.
Does anyone know the status om this?

Otherwise Otherwise I guess one has to stick with standard VGA or SVGA or
buy the commercial version that is mentioned in the same HOWTO.
