XFree86 NOTEBOOK-LCD Xconfig Problem

Post by NISCHELWITZER Alexander Ku » Fri, 09 Sep 1994 20:37:42



Hello,

I have problems with the installation of
XFree86. My Xconfig file doens't work
correct with my hardware and I didn't
found anything in XFree86-HOWTO which
could solve this problem.

I have no CL6440 (SVGA-file) in the
ConfigX86 program only lower CL (CIRRUS LOGIC)
drivers are there, and I also
don't know which monitor I should select for
my Dual Scan LCD Display (640x480x256), and
which clock rate does a LCD Display have?

Which of the Monitor Types in the ConfigX86
is for LCD Panels, and exists there a
Xconfig.sample for notebooks?

I have tested a lot of different controllers
and displays (with different colcks etc.)
but my linux system (1.0.9) always turned the display
black and didn't responde - so I had to reboot
several times or I got execution errors from startx.

My hardware is:
        i485DX2 notebook
        LCD DualScan[ Display CCFT 9.5inch
        Vesa Local Bus System
        Cirrus Logic Graphic Card CL-GD 6440
                internal 640x480x256
                external 1280x1024x16
                1MB

Thanks for your help,

                Nischi

I don't have the solution for YOUR card, but propably you'd like to try
the Xconfig from our Notebook - an Olivetti Philos 33 with (standard?)
vga (it's something like a WD90??? chip inside). I'm running only the
XF86-VGA16 server ! and it works only with 640x480x16.

1. Xconfig with Cl-GD6225 Vl chip on notebook LCD screen

I have installed Slackware 1.1.1 on my HCP6500 series notebook (Micro-
International, 486DX2-66, Mono-VGA/SVGA external, Cirrus Logic CL-GD6225
chipset, Local Bus, 512 KB Video RAM). I am now about to configure Xwindows
using the VGA16 server.

Does anybody know the settings for this type of machine? I see
other people have also been at a loss about configuring notebooks, since
they seem to be largely unlisted in the monitor databases.

Thanks in advance,

Bart Verspagen
