Monitor/Video Card Problems Post Install 9.3 Pro


I installed 9.3 pro. I have an ATI Radeon 9200 video card and Samsung SyncMaster 710v LCD monitor. During DVD install, I could not get graphical install with 1280x1024, so I reduced to 1024x768 (that may not be exact). I was able to get a graphical install. All went well. When the kde desktop comes up all looks ok with 2 issues:

1. Firefox scrolls really slow almost like a bad slide show and when I move the mouse scroll 1 notch, it actually takes a few seconds for the screen to catch up. This problem occurs in other areas of the os but not as bad as firefox.

2. I want to switch to 1280 x 1024

I think I have to do some X11/xorg.conf work, which I've not ever done. I know the refresh rates (vert/horiz) are wrong and I manually edited the xorg.conf file and it did not fix the problem and ultimately I lost the graphical screen. So I reinstalled suse and now have the graphical screeen again and need some help. Thank you. Mark


My xorg.conf file is:

Looking over you Xorg.conf file it appears that SuSE doesn't recognize your exact monitor so it has defaulted to a generic monitor, one that most likely is set with a max size of 1024 x 768. what you need to do is set your system up with the correct monitor. if you know the correct module for your monitor go ahead and manually edit the xorg.conf file, but, and I'm guessing you probably don't, than use SuSE's Administration of X tool sax2, easiest way to get to it is look in the KDE menu under System => Configuration you should have a link for sax2, once in there should be an option to configure your monitor, sax will have a list of all the monitors it has installed modules for, it will also let you set the screen resolution. before you run sax I would recommend making a back up copy of your xorg.conf file so if you happen to chose a wrong module you will just have to replace the active conf file with the back up.

Hope this helps you out, if you still have problems let us know and we'll try to get you more help.

Thank You

Just a quick note of thanks for taking time to look at the file and offer some help. I have used Linux for 6 months only. I am trying to decide on a distro -- I worked with Fedora 3 initially -- so I thought I would compare with Suse, which is clearly a top notch distro. In Fedora, all my hardware was detected correctly at install. So I looked at the Fedora xorg.conf file and thought to just copy it in the Suse file. However, I wanted to check here first. I'm going to have rest and not do anything until I'm fresh in the morning. I will follow your sax2 direction. If you or anyone has other ideas, I will so appreciate help. Thank you so much for even looking at this for me. I am ever grateful. I have made backup of my home directory and am nervous to work from command line if anything bad happens, but I will try. BTW HenchmenResourc, I went to SLC last year on a ski trip--what a beautiful part of the world!! Thanks again! Anyway, my Fedora 3 xorg.conf file looked like this:

Results of sax2

I found sax 2 in the system tools and ran it. The screen went black and then returned to nothing. I ran sax2 for the command line as root and the output was:
__________________________________________
sax 2 initializing
UPS lost card during probing . . . abort
__________________________________________

Any ideas on what to do?

Thanks again. Mark

Although I am by no means an expert regarding Linux, I'd like to offer one suggestion:

Try selecting one of the LCD-related options when you re-configure the X11 system through YaST.

I found, at least on my systems, that using one of the LCD options with a Samsung SyncMaster 191T allowed correct performance.

Without exception the monitor is seen as a SyncMaster 4f (as I recall) by SuSE.

Thanks Ron

I appreciate it, the bad news, I have no idea how to reconfigure through YAST. Every option hardware, video card, all of them never make it to any menus. Similar to how I described the sax2 problem. I'm not sure if I have to reconfigure xorg.conf from command line. I hope someone who has had this problem can help. If you have any further suggestions, most appreciated. Thanks for taking time to read, I know it's a long ugly post.

YaST, in its video configuration module, basically provides a graphic interface to SaX2.
If you're using the KDE graphic desktop YaST should offer all its modules under the 'System' menu.
The video and other modules aren't actually on menus.
When you start YaSt the system will prompt for the root password.

Then, follow the steps I outline below:

Open the KDE menu.
Select System then YaST.
Enter your root password.
In the left pane click on Hardware.
In the right pane click on 'Graphics Card and Monitor'.
The next window 'Desktop Settings' shows your present video card, monitor settings, whether you have 3D acceleration enabled, and provides two buttons: 'Change...' and 'Reprobe...'.
Click 'Change...'.
In the right pane click the item 'Monitor'.
The next window will show the monitor as known by the system.
Click the button 'Properties...'.
In the left pane scroll to the entry for '--> LCD' and select it.
In the right pane scroll to the entry '1280X1024@60HZ' and select it.
Click the button 'Ok'.
Click the button 'Finish'.
Click the button 'Finalize'.
You will be prompted to 'Test...' the new configuration. Testing is a good idea as it will quickly tell you whether the X server can handle the requested configuration.
If the test fails with an error message re-run the configuration and try a different vertical refresh rate.
If your screen goes blank / black and the video signal light blinks, press CTRL + ALT + Backspace (just as you would press CTRL + ALT + Delete) to kill the X server.
This should return you to your current graphic desktop.

I hope this is of some value.

SaX

Ron -- Thanks again for looking. Your steps are very clear. The problem is when I click on change, nothing happens, no messages, nothing, it's as if I never clicked on change. The reason is when I ran sax fromthe command line in init3, the following error was posted:

15-May 21:23:12 <I> [ Sysp: XStuff detection data
SaX: ups lost card during probing... abort

so sax is aborting and of course the graphical tool will not work either. So far, nobody has a clue how to fix this so I can reconfigure my video card/monitor. If you have any ideas, please let me know. I am so thankful to everyone who tries to help. I know it takes personal time.

I'm bummed because the install went perfect, updates went perfect, dual boot system is perfect, Yast even figured out my external usb sound card--SB Audigy 2NX! The last thing I thought would be a problem with video. Anyway if anyone has further help, I really appreciate it.

Mark

video card/monitor problems

Well the problem is sax2 is detecting 2 video cards, my ati 9200 (PCI) and my onboard video (intel i845), which is not enabled in BIOS. I guess sometimes the onboard card can be embedded. I ran this command at root:

#sax2 -c 1 -m 1=radeon

(##this is specific to this configuration-don't enter this command if you are just reading this post##)

I still can't get a graphical screen but the correct hardware is now configured, I just can't get x up and running. I am posting an edited version of my /var/log/SaX.log. If anyone has any further help,
I sure would appreciate it.

/var/log/SaX.log

I had the same problem. Changed to LCD 1280 X 1024 in SAX2 under generic monitor types. Fixed the problem after a reboot.

ghrikill is on to something. There's a possiblity that sax2 in Suse 9.3 has a bug, and sax2 is part of the initial install & hardware detection process. I've read when suse can't read the monitor specs, you have to go into sax2 and setup the geometry first - that is, the x & y settings in millimeters. To do that, you may have to measure your monitory and if you're using US ruler, convert inches to millimeters. I think my Viewsonic Optiquest LCD was something like 336 x 224. Then, when you do that in sax, you must test the changes, and see that the display is properly centered. When it is, save the settings, exit and restart Suse, and you should be OK. I had to do it 3 times before it finally worked, and have had no problems since.
