Please, Please, Please...
I know I can't be the only person running linux and X-windows on a gateway
machine, so if you too are running this card/monitor set up please send me
your Xconfig file so that I can get something besides 640x480 vesa running.
my exact set-up is:
Video Card: Diamond SpeedStar Plus w/1Mb Ram
Monitor: Gateway CrystalScan 1024NI
I've been trying for about a week now with bad results.
I realize that I shouldn't implicitly trust anyones Xconfig but please
don't let that stop you from sending it to me! If I blow the monitor then I
have an excuse for my wife why I have to buy a nice 17in monitor and new
board. (Well you and I know the board would probably be ok still but she's
an artist and I want Hi-Color and 1240x1024 resolution someday :-)
anyways, I've tried computing my own modes from modegen and by hand from
the tutorials but nothing really creates a nice image that doesn't wrap and
I'm probably just torturing my monitor because I can't find decent
information on the monitor such as what it's horizontal sync rate is or
what it needs for a horizontal of vertical sync pulse.
so please send me those Xconfigs for this setup and you will have my
