X problem with Asus L5


I'v got an Asus Notebook L5 I don't get X working working on it.

Installing RedHat 9.1 in graphical mode gives a black screen when starting installing.
So I tried it with text mode. But then when I select a generic screen and generic video I got a black screen again.

Same thing happend with Mandrake => black screen !


Thing is I got some Live distro's from Morphix from the magazine Linux format and that one works right away.

So it should be possible to get it working.

But How ???

When the distro starts it shows that it's using
an ATI Unknown device 1002:4c66
and a generic Monitor
1024*768 800*600 640*480

and an other distor says the frequenties are
28.0-96 V50-76

Using that just gices a black screen and no detaild info :-(

SO what will be the solution ??

Thx

This is probably going to be a headache as you'll have to make a regular install that boots to text mode and then hand configure X-windows. It work work something like the following:

Install RH, and at the end choose "boot to text mode"

When you first login, as root:

X -configure

That'll attempt to guess at your X-windows settings, and its going to be a much more rough guess then RedHat and Mandy's Xconfigurators.

Next it'll tell you to run the command:

X -xf86config /root/XF86Config.new

Go ahead and try that and if you get a black screen... go ahead and post up the entirety of that file here. Also, you should be able to get back to the console with:

ctrl+alt+backspace

That'll just kill X-windows, its also how you're going to get out of the test from above.

If the above test file worked, copy it over /etc/X11/XF86Config-4

with the command:

cp /root/XF86Config.new /etc/X11/XF86Config-4

(that might have been pedantic, but I don't know how fluent you are from the command line)

Then just try starting X again with:

startx

The resolution will probably suck, post back and we'll sort that out.

Cheers,

Finegan

The X -configure solution didn't give the answers I would have liked so here are the files it generated:

X couldn't figure out the H and V settings of your monitor on probe... that's annoying.

The easiest way to knock this out is probably to hand input the value of your monitor in Horizontal and Vertical refresh rates, it'll end up looking like this:
Code:
Section "Monitor"
        #DisplaySize      320   240     # mm
        Identifier   "Monitor0"
        VendorName   "GWY"
        ModelName    "1b5b"
        HorizSync    30.0 - 85.0
        VertRefresh  50.0 - 120.0
        Option      "DPMS"
EndSection
Those ranges are just for this big honking generic I have sitting on my desk. Yours are probably in the manual for the laptop, or possible on asus's site.

Cheers,

Finegan

I have the same problem.
But everything looks more triky then you can imagine.

Just try to start X-windows. It looks like it starts normally, just nothing on the screen. So, you simply see the dark LCD.
Now, plug in the external monitor and try to switch video output using the <Fn>+<F8> button.
HERE IS IT!

Looks like when X server starts it can't turn on the LCD properly.
I don't know how to solve this problem.
Maybe somebody have any ideas?

It just has to do with the refresh and sync ranges of the LCD in comparison to the CRT. For the normal monitor, its guess is within range, for the LCD its guessing out of range, so the LCD doesn't display or it would fry. Try to find out what the ranges on the LCD are directly from Asus's website and then enter them into XF86Config just like from the above clip.

Cheers,

Good idea, but I can't find any information about the refresh rates.
Maybe you can?
Here is the part from /var/log/XFree86.0.log file, does it helps:

(WW) fglrx(0): Only single display is connected, DesktopOption will be ignored
(II) fglrx(0): DesktopSetup 0x0000

That's actually too early in the log, they're at the end, but the log doesn't matter, you gotta hand edit: /etc/X11/XF86Config and give it settings like in the above example:
Code:
Section "Monitor"
        #DisplaySize      320   240     # mm
        Identifier   "Monitor0"
        VendorName   "GWY"
        ModelName    "1b5b"
        HorizSync    30.0 - 85.0
        VertRefresh  50.0 - 120.0
        Option      "DPMS"
EndSection
I wouldn't use those Horiz and Vert settings as that's for an old Gateway 17-inch CRT, but you should be able to get yours from your manufacturer's website.

Cheers,

Finegan
