Re: RedHat 7.3, S3 Trio64V+ and Sampo Alphascan 411: monitor turns off if I try 24 bit mode

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


You are running X 4.2 and not 3.3.6,
If you check the Supported software: 
Support, Documentation and Resources 
XFree86 video drivers support status 
You will find the restrictions as to the support (I would assume your card is supported in 4.2)

You might want to restrict vertical refresh to 50-60 just to check that the monitor is not
switching off because the frequency is too high (75 according to the log that should be OK?)
If nothing works then try 3.3.6 by changing /etc/X11/X to a symlink to /usr/X11R6/bin/XF86_S3 and
polishing your /etc/X11/XF86Config

If that does not work then I am out of ideas...
