Description Tim Waugh 2000-01-21 05:43:51 EST
In X configuration customisation, testing modes greater than 640x480 with a Matrox G400 doesn't work. The screen goes black momentarily, and then goes back to the X config screen. This card can _certainly_ do better than that, and I'm fairly sure this worked in 6.2beta1.
Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2000-01-21 05:59:59 EST
Arghh! It's worse! X _actually_ doesn't work in higher resolutions! Shall I report another bug against X?
Comment 2 Jay Turner 2000-02-15 19:49:59 EST
What does this card do under Beta3??  Any better?
Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2000-02-16 06:06:59 EST
Yeah, it's fine now.  It chooses colour depth 8 when 16 works fine, but that's
all.
Comment 4 Jay Turner 2000-02-16 08:23:59 EST
We are still tweaking the Xprobe code, so that might get ironed out here in the
next few releases.
