I am not able to get 1024x786 screen reslo
- the default are
Also when trying to set the reslo using Xconfigurator or setup does not show the menus for
screen reslo , display memory , and sync rates.
what could be my error.
For your default color depth, try 8 bits instead of 16.. I had a old trident card once using Redhat, can't remember sure the exact settings, but you should be able to at least get 800x600 out of this card...
You'll need to research this card. I would suggest the mfg.'s homepage for starters. You've got some good info to start with. Find the correct horiz. and vert. refresh rates. As mentioned above you'll probably only be able to do 800X600 at 8 or16 bits max. Let setup determine clock rates, as long as you plug-in everything else correctly. The problem could be as simple as adjusting your resolution and bit rate. Hope this helps somewhat.
I've got a few laptops with the Trident TGUI9660. I've fiddled with their XF86Configs a couple hundred times, but I've only every gotten them to display at 1024x768 under 8-bit color... which looks horrible. You might be asking a bit much from a 1Mb Video card. Also, definately check out the Hsync and Vert rates for the screen from the manufacturer site. If you know how, just hand edit the XF86Config file from there and don't bother with Xconfigurator and the like.
I have tried most of the setting through the config file, but any change i make does not make any effect. how do i know which file and if the file is getting used ie XF86Config, since it is contained in both /etc /usr/X11R6, coz i cannot out cout or cerr streams. who much mem vram does you card have if you can get
1024x786 then i should also get then. do you know the url of the card manufacturer. i will also search for it.
The card may simply not be able to do 1024x768. Between the 13inch monitor and the 1Meg of vram... that resolution may be asking a bit much at anything grater than 4-bit color. Even if you can get it to display at 8... that's going to look horrible.
The moniter can do 1024x786 coz i works well with win2000 , i think i will have to do a little info hunting on card specs about mem. if i install through the graphical interface of the redhat installer though the lowres mode then i will be able to set the right vram and also test the disp. thought i had a prob with the mode last time i used , i intallating just hung , thanks for all the help. I will post will i get the required result or need any help thanks a lot.
