One thing that i missed is that there is actually 2 NeoMagic cards in the config database. The second one, near the end (350?) is the one you need if you have the same card as i did.
Also, once you complete the config, make sure it is saved right to get around the problem that i had with the -4 file.
Thanks for searching before posting! A new Precident has been set!
I Posted this in another thread, but may one of you could also help:
The graphics are not pixelated, the res is good, but didplay is not filled entirely.
I did some searching and this is part of a link I found concerning the display I am using. Not my words, but part of another posting somewhere else:
"The screen is too small to even fit some KDE configuration dialog boxes, forcing you to use a virtual desktop larger than the physical screen (I hate that scrolling), or forcing you to try gymnastics with the window sizes, etc.
...While configuring KDE, I was quite desperate to get more screen real estate. So I switched the task bar at the top to disappear out of sight when not used, and likewise to the panel at the bottom. I also set the panel to small size. All this can be done by clicking on various checkboxes in the ``Applications'' section of the KDE Control Centre."
So, apparently on some displays, the screen is not filled entirely. I Ihave tried playing with the "Virtual x y" parameter in the "SCreen display" portion of the "XF86Config-4" file to see if there is a way to make my virtual display size larger.
So, right now I have 2 problems:
1. Not being able to boot directly into an shell. The reason I want to do this is to fool around with the "XF86Config-4" file, since you can't change this obviously while in X. You can, but it doesn't make sense without stopping X. So, what I need to do is to use "CTRL/ALT/BACKSPACE" to stop X and eventually I get out, if I hit the keys just right
2. Being able to run full screen versus partial screen.
Also two questions:
1.Looking at the posting I copied above, do you know which checkboxes are being referred to to get rid of the task bar and the panel?
2. Supposedly, by hitting the "CTRL/ALT/+" and or "CTRL/ALT/-" keys you can cycle through display resolotiions. This doesn't seem to work for me.
Sorry for all of these questions, but I have tried searching for the answers and haven't been able to come up with them.
