GUI on old IBM laptop


Here goes, I have an old IBM TP755CSE laptop. Have installed VL1.8, could not get x-server to work. Install VL3.2, again x-server does not work right, the problem is the laptop monitor is one of IBM dualscan models using Western Digital WD90C24A2 chipset. Everytime I try startx, I get a nice WM menu screen, or rather I get 3 of them chopped into various parts and scattered about the screen overlapping each other. Michael Steiner, wrote a "C" program ( TPDUALSCAN.C ) about 8 or 9 years ago that is supposed to cure this dualscan problem, which I have dl'ed and tried to run. However all I get are errors and the program ends.

System:
IBM model TP755CSE
486dx4-100
40MB ram
2.1 GB hd (dual boot w/ WIN98SE)
Western digital WD90C24A2 video
MWave DSP sound and onboard modem ( not worried about these right now)
10.4" TFT LCD monitor

I have searched many times googling this problem and always the same answer, use Stiener's program.

Errata:
$/usr/X11R6/bin ./tpdualscan.c
line1: /bin is a directory :command not found
line2: command not found
line3: Author:: command not found
line4:command not found
line5:http://www.ibm.zurich.ibm.com/pub/sti/www/info.
:command not found
line6:
line7: This: command not found
line8:syntax error near unexpected token 'to' etc...

this is the list of errors that I get when I try to run the program.
So, anyone have any ideas?
I am not quite a total noob as I have been trying out various linux distros on several machines over the past4 years.
Any help or ideas would be most appreciated.
Thank you all.
And yes so far I like the VL- text programs that I can run as of now.

The error log should be /var/log/XFree86.0.log

At least it is on my slackware system. try this.

cat /var/log/XFree86.0.log | grep (EE)

That should give you a list of the error messages in the log.

Hi,
I think you might get a better answer in the programs/programming section of the forum. But I'll try anyway, my apologies if I say anything stupid.
I'm no C programming expert, but I can see you haven't compiled the program and it looks like your system is trying to run each line in the source code it as if it where a shell script.
To create a working program you could try:
Code:
gcc tpdualscan.c -o tpdualscan
Assuming you have the gnu compiler installed, that would create the program "tpdualscan".
I've had a look at the source code, and it should print a message regarding usage of the program (I think you need to use commandline flags).
Also, if you run the program by specifying the full path then you must omit the "./" so instead of
Code:
/usr/X11R6/bin ./tpdualscan
you execute
Code:
/usr/X11R6/bin/tpdualscan
I hope this helps

JJ
