Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 11804
Power saver failed on SVGA
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:55 EDT
The power saver feature doesn''t work.
XF86config contains Option "Power_saver" in the device section
I have tried to force the power saver mode using xset without any success
It works under windows.
My server : SVGA (xrage.rpm (XFCom_Rage128) )
My video card : ati rage 128
My monitor : Sony 210ES
It seems that the driver in Suse's package for XSVGA includes dpms features.
Unofrtunately the packages is not RedHat compliant (keyboard and so on...)
I suppose there is a way to solve this if one can recompile the driver with the
we do include DPMS support, the power_saver option isn't for all cards. You can
either set up DPMS with the xset command, or via the BlankTime, StandbyTime, and
SuspendTime Options for XF86Config.
I didn't succeed in setting up dpms features.
The xset +dpms or xset dpms force standby commands do nothing
I suppose something is wrong either in my XF86Config file or in the server
I join some pieces of my config file:
Identifier "ATI|Rage 128 RF"
Device "ATI|Rage 128 RF"
Monitor "Sony CPD-210GS/210EST/T9"
ViewPort 0 0
