Confirming this with my IIYAMA A705MT monitor, which was detected fine in RedHat 7.3
Comment 2 Michael Fulbright 2002-07-09 20:06:52 EDT
Kudzu issue.
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2002-07-11 12:06:53 EDT
What video cards?
Comment 4 Marius Andreiana 2002-07-11 12:21:49 EDT
I have nvidia tnt2 m64 with 32mb ram, which is detected fine.
Comment 5 Thomas M Steenholdt 2002-07-11 13:31:27 EDT
My video card - Creative 3D blaster (nvidia - geforce2 MX 32MB) - is probed
fine... Only the monitor is not detected!
Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2002-07-11 16:16:18 EDT
Fixed in kudzu-0.99.57-1.
Comment 7 Thomas M Steenholdt 2002-07-16 17:07:49 EDT
Tried it, and the monitor is probed fine(Xconfigurator) but now it seems the
probing for video RAM is not working... I did not try this with Xconfigurator
before, but at least it's unable to detect my 32MB video RAM(the Geforce 2MX)...
Finds the card and  suggests the right driver just fine... when it comes to
probe for memory an error occurs. This might be another problem, but I just
wanted to mention it here to get your reaction to the issue.
Comment 8 Bill Nottingham 2002-07-16 18:22:35 EDT
Was video memory ever probed correctly before?
Comment 9 Thomas M Steenholdt 2002-07-17 06:21:39 EDT
It was probed correctly during the installation - I don't know if it's the same
component that does the probing during inst. and using Xconfigurator...
Comment 10 Thomas M Steenholdt 2002-07-31 01:53:31 EDT
Everything works fine in Limbo 7.3.93

Adapter + Monitor are both detected correctly during the installation!
