Xfree has a garbled display when run above 800x600 (any pixel depth) on an
SiS 620 chipset. Resolutions of 640x480 and 800x600 work fine. There is
something specific to Wolverine, as it works fine when dual-booted to RH7.0
+ XFree 4.0.2.
In addition if Wolverine is updated to tonight's release of XFree 4.0.3
then the SiS 620 driver works as it should
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install wolverine on a system with a SiS 620 display
2.Select res above 800x600 (for example 1024x768x16bpp)
Actual Results: Display is badly garbled. Huge block cursor, verticle
Expected Results: A clean X display
This system is based on the AsusTek MES-N (NLX form factor) MB w/ built in
SiS 620 controller using 8192MB memory.
Ok, please expand on "if updated to XFree 4.0.3 it works properly". Are
you saying you've installed 4.0.3 yourself from sources or a bindist? If
so, and it isn't my RPM's, can you download and try my RPM's of 4.0.3 and
see if they work for you? If you are using 4.0.3 from elsewhere and it
works, and my package doesn't, it could be a compiler issue, or perhaps
some patch is breaking things. Anyway, update this asap so we can try to track
Get Mesa 3.4-13 also in addition to XFree86.
Install of the XFree 4.0.3 was done by downloading the binaries
and running the Xinstall.sh script.
I just tried the RPMs from:
And they worked. I had saved a backup of /etc/X11 and of /usr/X11R6 prior to
4.0.3 upgrade from ftp.xfree.org. To test the above rpms I first rm -rf
and then restored the tar'd backup. Then I applied the above RPMs. I think
well exercised the fix. This evening I could try a full Wolverine re-install
and apply the RPMs
if feel that is useful.
fixed in rawhide.
