Need Help - S3 KM133 CTX MS700 Combo

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Need help on this one and fast!

I got to know a guy who just opened a computer store down the street
from me. He has local storefront i one of the big grocery stores in the
area so he gets lots of traffic. To make a long story short, I got him a
copy of FC1 and he was willing to install it on a PC in his front window
for everyone to see.

Well guess what, he has a motherboard and monitor combo that is driving
FC1 nutz! It an S3 (Savage) KM133 on-board video set with a CTX MS700
flat screen display. When using the default settings, X comes up in a
mode that is beyond the monitor. I can't figure out how to get it to do
what it's supposed to - display something. It's forcing itself to
1152x864 at 75MHz - and those settings aren't listing anywhere in
XF86Config that I can find.

Switching the driver to the standard vesa driver (same XF86Config file
except I replace the line "driver savage" with "driver vesa") at least
gets me a 1024x768 24-bit picture, but it's unaccelerated, so games like
Tux Racer are horrible. Help! This guy is interested in selling PCs with
Linux and Fedora is making him have second thoughts!
