Description weaver 2000-04-30 16:47:23 UTC
Initial install video test and startx failed (monitor kicked out, black screen); running Xconfigurator after install properly shows monitor data and settings in XF86Config, but in Gnome the monitor only works at 800X600 resolution. Any higher resolutions in both 8 and 16 bit give a defective screen image, very off-centered and with mouse click greatly displaced. ctrl-alt-+ fails to cycle settings; new entries in XF86Config enable new settings. (I'm new to Red Hat, haven't yet found a video tool.) Xconfigurator correctly identifies RIVA 128 chip & 4 MB ram (ELSA Victory Erazor card). The hardware works fine at higher resolutions in W95.

Fixed with xvidtune -- not easy to find!

If Xconfigurator can't quite handle standard configurations on quality consoles, then new users should be told about xvidtune right away.

If Xconfigurator can't quite handle standard configurations on quality consoles, then new users should be told about xvidtune right away.

SuSe's SaX, by the way, handles this config with no problems -- no additional manipulation with extra tools required.

This should work better with new DDC probing and/or XFree 4
