Description Cyrus B. Hall 1999-12-19 19:52:44 EST
I run several programs which, unfortunately, require either virtual 8-bit
modes when in actual 16 or 24 bit modes, or native 8-bit modes.  I am
running a Mach64 with a Nec Multisynch XV17+ with 4MB memory.  When
executing Xconfigurator, I can properly start up in most resolutions at 16-
bit, but in 8-bit, I can only start up in 640X... and 800X600 mode.  I
need higher resolution for SAOtng, etc. (Astronomy Programs.)  When I
select the 1076X780 (?) resolution, it displays several fuzzy images
across the screen rather than a nice usable one.  Any fixes?  Thanks.

Comment 1 Cyrus B. Hall 1999-12-19 19:53:59 EST
Also, when I try to go back to change the resolution, the system hangs with a
blank screen and I am forced to reboot.
Comment 2 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-07-11 14:16:23 EDT
Can you check this in Red Hat Linux 6.2?
Comment 3 Cyrus B. Hall 2000-07-18 21:53:44 EDT
I don't plan to install 6.2.  The problem was caused by selecting the NEC 17+ 
monitor, which apparently has bad settings.  Configuring my own monitor 
specifications worked fine.
Comment 4 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-07-26 10:14:43 EDT
Packages should be binary compatible, you should only need to download
Xconfigurator from 6.2...

Anyway, these are our current settings:

NEC Technologies; NEC MultiSync XV17+ (-2); NEC43BD; 31.0-82.0; 55.0-100.0

Are these correct?
Comment 5 Cyrus B. Hall 2000-07-26 19:44:17 EDT
That is generally what I've manually configured.  Thanks.  If I get to 6.2, 
then I'll check it out further.
Comment 6 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-07-27 14:05:29 EDT
Ok, I'll assume it's fixed (besides, our newest Xconfigurator (Rawhide) does
