Description Stephen John Smoogen 2000-08-11 14:23:30 EDT
In RC1, I am unable to get X to install greater than 640x480 256 colors.
This failure occurs both in the graphical install and post install using
Xconfigurator.
All other modes than 640x480 fail on X startup or during configuration.

 x                                                 x
              x PCI probing found a:                            x
              x                                                 x
              x PCI Entry    : Matrox|MGA 2164W [Millennium II] x
              x X Server     : XF86_SVGA                        x
              x XFree4 driver: mga (Not used by default)        x
              x                                                 x
              x                     lqqqqk                      x
              x                     x Ok x                      x
              x                     mqqqqj                      x


After exiting the install  and starting X the following errors are listed:

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2000-08-11 14:33:18 EDT
Did it probe your monitor as anything in particular?
Comment 2 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-08-11 14:34:39 EDT
Do you have this box around here somewhere?
Comment 3 Stephen John Smoogen 2000-08-11 14:59:10 EDT
Box is in my cube... went to find you earlier. [You were at lunch.. Erik must
be letting up.. in the old days programmers were chained to a desk until
release day.] The monitor was probed during the install and came up with
a DAC code. During the Xconfigurator on post install it tries to probe and
then goes to "Custom Monitor" list.
Comment 4 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-08-11 15:55:01 EDT
Somehow, only the 50 from "50-90" in VertRefresh survives...
Comment 5 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-08-11 17:06:54 EDT
OK - fixed. "A - B" monitor range as opposed to "A-B" didn't work. Look for
4.3.46 in the 7.0test tree.
