I'm having a lot of grief getting some chips and technologies drivers to
work with windows inside warp - full screen is ok (eventually), windowed
The scenario: 486DX2/80, 8M ram, C&T 64300 video card 1MB Dram, win3.11
C&T windows drivers are ok, all resolutions and colour work as expected.
Warp: install as VGA and then use custom install of C&T drivers which
Copy SVGADATA.PMI from install disk to D:\OS2
This brings up a dialog box which usually has SVGA highlighted (even after
I've got the C&T drivers installed). I select change and then pick
"Chips and Technologies 64300" from the list of available drivers and then
exit the selection box. AT THIS POINT THE HIGHLIGHTED DRIVER IS SVGA (not
the chosen one)???? Anyway continuing on it does install the higher res
drivers and DOES SOMETHING to the windows directory ???
On reboot, I get 800x600 in 256 colours but windows will ONLY start full
screen and only in 16 colours.
Changing "WINOS2 setup" has no effect - it offers the dialag box,
lets me pick a new resolution and # of colours, restarts windows and behold
- ALWAYS - still at 640x480x16 (an only in full screen).
My supplier suggested changing the "FDISPLAY=" (full screen) and
"SDISPLAY" line inside windows system.ini. Manually changing
FDISPLAY to the standard windows driver will at give me
640x480x256 using accellerated C&T drivers BUT STILL NO windowed WINOS2
sessions (eg windows ONLY works full screen but now with 256 colours).
I'm getting frustrated, mainly because I can't find out what supposed to
be happening (what files need to be changed/available...).
I assume that OS/2 needs its own driver that WINOS2 is supposed to use
to display windowed sessions. There are VGA & XGA windows drivers
on the C&T installation diskette, I'm not quite sure that it's using them.
