X Window Sync Setup
I am a total nublar to Linux. I recently attempted to install SuSE Pro 8.2 onto one of my computers. Everything seems to go fine except when I finish the setup and the computer reboots, I get an error message on the LCD monitor (samsung 150mp) saying:
Sync. Out of Range
21.6k / 27
The video is output through ProSavage8 which is integrated into a KM266 chipset on an MSI mobo. So I checked the sync settings in the samsung user guide and the h.sync and v.sync ranges are correct in the xf86config. Dumbfounded, I tried to ctrl-alt-+ to see what happened and low and behold, the second time I do that I get into a HUGE virtual screen. Nonetheless, the 1024x768 setting would not work. I have no idea why my monitor is getting that sync error. Any thoughts?
(some help understanding what "21.6k / 27" means would be a good start...I think)
(perhaps it's a vid.card issue?)
