Description Jorit Dorn 2001-02-02 13:43:05 UTC
I installed fisher on my Toshiba Satellite 2710 notebook and with and
without the framebuffer installation it seems as if the display is running
at 50 hz.

I tried a reconfiguration with Xconfigurator --preferxf4 without any effect
(Generic 1024x768 LCD), everything works fine with my RH 7.0

Comment 1 Glen Foster 2001-02-02 23:08:38 UTC
We (Red Hat) should really fix this before the next release.

Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2001-02-06 17:17:40 UTC
Please provide extreme details as to the hardware in the machine, and include
a config file attachment, and the output of your X server as attachments
to this bugzilla bug.

it flickers with redhat 7.1 and a Xfree 3.3.6 SVGA Server too.

it does not with XF 4.0.1 and XF 3.3.6 on my RH 7.0
I'll attach the old XF86Config-4.

Comment 8 Jorit Dorn 2001-02-14 09:46:31 UTC
even with the old config it's still flickering.
to me it seems that it's the new server or something like that :-(

anyway for someone with some smaller eye-problems (like me) I can not use this 
display, it simply hurts after some minutes :-(

It's fixed with wolverine. THX
