i8k, A22, SuSE and Sax2, + External monitor problems
- Is anyone running ....
1. i8k w/ BIOS A22, and sucessfully using an external display (CRT)?
(If so what distro)
2. The above on SuSE linux 8.2?
I can get the 1400x1050 display to operate correctly on the built in
LCD, but when I try to use an external monitor, everything goes to
pot. I can not run Sax2, as this results in a horribly garbled display
(looks like 4 screens superimpossed/compressed).
In the past with SuSE 8.2, I got this to work by passing sax2 the "-d"
parameter (gods know why, it doesn't make sense), but I duplicated
this. (Tried it with -d switch, it worked, tried it w/o the -d switch,
Now after a (Bios from A21 to A22), reinstall, plus YOU update, I
can't use my external monitor any longer (which is connected to an
APR, but I get the same results whether the CRT is connected to the
laptop directly or via. the APR).
Anyone else struggling with this?
I've tried both a Viewsonic PS790 and Viewsonic A90+, The A90+ is a
horrible flickering image, vs. the PS790 which is just unreadable.
