I was able to tweak his settings and
optimize my hardware - i ended up w/ the folowing
ModeLine "1128x900-74" 74.00 1104 1128 1264 1424 900 900 902 932
The only problem I have now is that when I view gifs (w/ XView)
all the colors are wrong - it's as if it's the right
color but applied to the wrong spot. However JPGS work fine.
Is this a previously noted problem? The gifs work fine
if I'm in 8 bit mode, but I would imagagine that they should
also work in 16 bit mode. I only have 2M so I havn't tried
running it in 24 bit mode. Any help would be appreciated.
The following is my system configuration :
Diamond Stealth 64 vlb 2M vram card
the following are relevant areas of my XF86Config file
Identifier "Stealth 64 Vram 2M"
BoardName "Stealth 64"
The colors all came out as different shades of green w/o
the Option "dac_8_bit". I only tried the dac_8_bit w/
jpgs - i didn't try looking at gifs w/o that option...
Device "Stealth 64 Vram 2M"
ViewPort 0 0
I really wouldn't like to have to switch to 8 bit mode _every_
time I wanted to view a GIF. Could it be a bad
card? Any help would be appreciated,
thanks in advance,
p.s. I am using the XF86-3.1-S3-Patch3.tar.gz server
