REQUEST: Xconfig for Diamond Stealth 32 PCI

REQUEST: Xconfig for Diamond Stealth 32 PCI

Post by Pono » Thu, 16 Mar 1995 18:37:24



Has anyone got a Xconfig file that works for the Diamond Stealth 32 PCI.
That is has anyone got X running in a resilution higher that 640x480. I
am fed up of running X in such a small resolution. Ideally I need to run
in a resolution of 800x600.

If anyone can supply a copy of a working Xconfig file I would really
appreciate it. Or if anyone can enlighten me as to how to set up a
Diamond Stealth 32 PCI for 800x600 resolution for X.

If anyone has any information/help PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE mail me on


or reply to this posting.

TIA for any help.

Regards Zeph.

 
 
 

1. Diamond Stealth 32 Xconfig

The following is my Xconfig for my Diamond Stealth 32 2MB VLB. It is for
XFree 2.1.1, so you modern guys and gals with XF 3.1 will have to make
some changes.

Additionally I added 2 lines to my startx to change the third dot clock
(numbered 0,1, and 2) to 65.011MHz and to change it back after X. I use
the freq program to do this. I add:

        PATH/freq 65011 2 --> at the beginning of startx
        PATH/freq 28318 2 --> at the end of startx

Freq can be found in a compressed archive diamond.taz on various Linux
sites (sunsite.unc.edu, tsx-11.mit.edu etc). Hope this helps someone.

Please feel free to write me back if you have troubles.
