XFree86 woes on HP Vectra

XFree86 woes on HP Vectra

Post by Stan Bro » Tue, 15 Oct 1996 04:00:00



        I still haven't found anything that will work to get X up on my
HP Vectra. Everything I do results in the X server causing the machine to
reboot itself. At this point in time I have configured the system to
use the SVGA generic X servere. Here are the results of X -probeonly
(which BTW doesn;t crash the machine).

You have a Cirrus Logic GD5434.  In xf86config's card database, select the
entry:

25  Cirrus Logic GD543x                               CL-GD5430/5434

Quote:>(--) SVGA: videoram: 1024k

You have 1024K of video RAM.  Make the appropriate selection when prompted
by xf86config.

Also, when selecting the X server, choose option 5, "Use server based on
card definition".

Hope this helps some.

XFree86 woes on HP Vectra

Hello,

Have you reconfigured your kernel to use your PS/2 mouse?  If you
haven't, your x-windows will *and your system will reboot
shortly after you launch X.

good luck,

tom

        This gentelman was the first, and so far only person to corectly
diagnose the probelm. I apprecaie this very much. I also appreciate all
the other helpful sugestions.

        At this point I can start X without crashing my machine.
Unfortunatley the mouse doesn't *work* , it just doesn't crash the
machine. Yes I changed the link to /dev/mouse to what I think is the
correct device for a PS/2 mouse.

        Anyone have any good sugestiosn here ?

Have you enabled it in the kernel?  You didn't write which FreeBSD
version you're running, for versions <= 2.1 you need to rebuild a new
kernel with the `psm0' device.  For 2.1.5 or recent 2.2 SNAPs, simply
boot with -c, and enable psm0 in UserConfig.

cheers, J"org


Never trust an operating system you don't have sources for. ;-)

 
 
 

1. HP Vectra & large IDE WOES

I'm trying to install Slakware 3.0 onto a HP Vectra Pentium with a
Quantum 1280A (IDE) w/ 2484 cylinders, 16 heads, and 63 sectors.

In the BIOS, does the LBA need to be shut off?  And does the
HD need STANDARD vs. EXTENDED?  That is, do any of the default
BIOS settings need to be modified for a Linux only system?

Thanks,
Donovan
