PostPosted: Thu Aug 04, 2005 3:19 am    Post subject: Ultra 10 Xorg problem Reply with quote

So i finally got Xorg compiled and installed. After much playing around, i got it to mostly work at the resolution i want (1280x1024) with the onboard ATI video card going to my run-of-the-mill Gateway 17 inch monitor. Now i have a strange problem with the screen. It flickers, because the vertical refresh rate is at 42.4 Hz, no matter what i set it at in /etc/X11/xorg.conf. I have a range of 70-120 in xorg.conf, but why is it going below that?


On a side note, i was offered a beautiful sun monitor for 25 bucks. And it actually works. This machine had a creator 3d card which i had to pull in order to get the onboard video to work, because i obviously could'nt plug my vga monitor into the 13w3 connector, and i didnt have an adaptor. Would i be better off getting the monitor, reinstalling the creator 3d, and going from there? Most people in the forums seem to be using creators with their ultra 10s. Onboard video only has 2M of ram as well. Any thoughts?

Is it with a 2.6 kernel?
I have exactly the same card (3D Rage) on my Ultra10, but on loading X complains that it can not find the "ati" module.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks.

U10 + Creator3D + sun monitor should work fine. There are xorg.conf files around for such a configuration; the ones at http://dev.gentoo.org/~fmccor/ are still pretty correct --- at least, they show what is needed for the Creator card.

I don't know anything about the onboard mach64, because I do not have one running.

Regards,

try setting VIDEO_CARDS="mach64" in your /etc/make.conf
and
emerge xf86-video-ati
(i'm assuming you are using the on-board video)
