I recently purchased an Xtasy 9100 video card (based of the Radeon 9100 chipset) to replace my 8 MB integrated card. After I did the setup in windows, I rebooted and went into Linux. It detected the hardware, and I configured it. It defaulted my display to 800x600, which is too small for my 17" display. After that finished, I went to select new settings (In Gnome) and selected 1024x768, and 'Enable Hardware 3D acceleration'. I rebooted, and as soon as X-Windows started up, the monitor went blank, as if it had went into sleep mode (the pwer indicator turned from green to amber). So I pulled out the card and reconfigured everything, so I am at the default settings again. What can I do to increase my resolution and/or enable the hardware 3d acceleration properly? Here are my system specs.:
Pentium 3 500MHz
256 MB SDRAM
RedHat Linux 9/Win 98 (Dual Boot)
64 MB DDR Xtasy 9100 Video (replacing integrated 8MB ATI rage pro)
I went to a terminal and typed "redhat-config-xfree86" and got the same dialog box as I did bwfore when I accessed it through the menu system. Thanks in advance.
