This is not such a big problem, but it's really getting on my nerves. Every time I drag across the desktop to select multiple icons the square dotted line "smears" across the desktop. I attached a screen shot in case you don't get what I'm talking about. I contacted the manufacturer of my monitor and found out the sync ranges are:

Horizontal: 30-70kHz
Verticle: 50-120Hz





Here is part of my XF86Config file:

# This is a set of standard mode timings. Modes that are out of monitor spec

# and video card can support for a given resolution is automatically
# used.

Sorry, I forgot about the screen shot. Go here http://members.tripod.com/the3nipwonder/screenshot1.jpg

justin19fl 06-04-2001 06:40 PM

I don't get it. The link is bad, but you can copy and paste it in your browser and it goes fine.

CragStar 06-06-2001 04:39 PM

Have you defined your monitor correctly? Could you not be a bit more specific with what it is?

justin19fl 06-07-2001 04:58 PM

It's a Proview, but I forgot the exact model. I read the numbers on the back to a Proview tech support guy, and he told me the sync ranges. Anyway, it's newer than Red Hat 6.1 (that's what I'm using).

trickykid 06-07-2001 05:21 PM

You then might want to check out http://www.xfree86.org and see if there are any updated drivers or what not else or reported problems with that particular monitor. It might need an update of xfree86 even.

justin19fl 06-07-2001 07:20 PM

There weren't any Proview monitors at all in the list when I installed RH 6.1, so I picked "Generic Multisync" and changed the lines in my XF86Config file. I thought it would work fine at 800X600. I was thinking about upgtrading to ver. 7.0, so maybe I'll just wait...

CragStar 06-09-2001 01:42 PM

Hi again,

I just thought that I would let you know that at the moment I am testing my Video Card with Linux and trying out different configs. During a regular install with Mandrake8.0 I decided to choose version 4.03 of Xfree86. This actually caused the same problem which you had.

I know that you probably haven't got 4.03, but that you may also not have version 3.3.6. I would suggest trying to upgrade to this version first so that you can make sure that it isn't a version problem. I think that that is the version used by RedHat 7.0 so an upgrade may work.

If I find out the answer to my prob I will let you know.

rabidundead 06-13-2001 11:02 PM

my advice
 
upgrade to rh 7.1, the last thing you need is the possibility of more problems... rh7 has a lot of bugs, not that they weren't diligent in bringing 7.1 to the table before everyone ran for cover, but hey, 7.1 is stable as all get out.



:) and to let u know, i had the same problem w/ mandrake 8 and my hp m50 monitor, but rh 7.1 kicks, and uses the 'good' version of xfree86. extra.extra. get ur kudos in 7.1... sorry i'm a little excentric (not to mention fanatical.)



anyway, there go. later.
