xfree86 3.3.1 & FreeBSD 2.2.5 & Mach32 sync problem

xfree86 3.3.1 & FreeBSD 2.2.5 & Mach32 sync problem

Post by Skip Hans » Mon, 29 Dec 1997 04:00:00

I've been using FreeBSD and Xfree86 with the Mach32 X server for several years
without problem.  Recently I upgraded from FreeBSD 2.1.6 to 2.2.5 with Xfree
3.3.1 and I'm now having a minor problem that's driving me crazy.  The problem
is that when I exit X (or switch virtual console which is in text mode) my
monitor loses horizontal sync.  Using vidcontrol to reset the console mode does
not restore syn. The only thing that will get the monitor to sync again is a
complete system restart.  The generic VGA256 server does not have this problem.
I've recompiled the Mach32 server from sources and it does exactly the same
thing.  I don't believe this is a kernel problem since the generic VGA server
works correctly.  Does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this ?

1. PERL && mod_perl && FreeBSD && Apache

k, I don't know where this falls under or who I should be asking... but
here's my problem.

mod_perl port installed Perl modules in
'/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.005/i386-freebsd/Apache/' but didn't

have to rebuild the system perl components? the mod_perl? or is there a conf
file somewhere that I cannot find?

could 'mv' everything as well... but I would like to hear some other
opinions or options.
