Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 7892
Xconfigurator hangs system on back, and 8-bit options do not work properly
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:53 EDT
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.
Also, when I try to go back to change the resolution, the system hangs with a
blank screen and I am forced to reboot.
Can you check this in Red Hat Linux 6.2?
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.
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?
That is generally what I've manually configured. Thanks. If I get to 6.2,
then I'll check it out further.
Ok, I'll assume it's fixed (besides, our newest Xconfigurator (Rawhide) does
