Console "out of range" for monitor after starting X
I am currently setting up a gentoo server but ive encountered a problem, when setting up the apropriate drivers for my gfx card
and starting X, all my other consoles(tty1, tty2, etc) becomes "out of range" for my monitor.
A very wierd thing makes the console switch resolution, not even ctrl-alt-backspace(stopping the xorg server) makes the consoles appear again.
Only rebooting helps.
Anyone encountered this problem before? Or knows what error logs to check or what to change?
Xorg config file:
you may need to specify modelines as per
VendorName "Plug'n Play"
# TV fullscreen mode or DVD fullscreen output.
# 768x576 @ 79 Hz, 50 kHz hsync
ModeLine "768x576" 50.00 768 832 846 1000 576 590 595 630
# 768x576 @ 100 Hz, 61.6 kHz hsync
ModeLine "768x576" 63.07 768 800 960 1024 576 578 590 616
you may wish to run vidtune or check your monitor specs?
Ill check out vidtune, but it seems like the Xorg server changes the resolution of my consoles also... Ive been using linux for a long time but i have never experienced anything like this...
I am having the very same problem. Xorg seems to change the resolution to something out of range for the console.
Has anybody found a solution yet?
