PostPosted: Sat 21 Apr 2007, 09:46    Post_subject:  Hansol Mazellan 15ax, can't get 1024x768 to work  

I'm trying to resurrect an ex-98 desktop, with Hansol Mazellan 15ax video, 40gb hdd, AMD 2200+, 256MB ram

When I boot puppy (2.15ce from hd or cd, or 2.16exp1 from cd) then I get the xorg black screen if I accept the offered 1024x768x16.

I have to ctrl-alt-bs and rerun xorgwizard and set it as 800x600x16.

Using the lower res means that browsing is like looking thru a keyhole! (i.e. pages apear too large for the browser window)

A quick google of "Hansol Mazellan 15ax linux " threw up this link http://linuxreviews.org/howtos/xfree/monitor/hansol/ but not much else (and I don;t know what to do with that info or even if it is remotely useful)

can anyone help?

thanks

paul

A few days ago I posted (in the Dotpups part of the forum) an updated version of the xorgwizard that will (hopefully) solve your problem.

I have another idea: please try running
Code:
grep '#card0driver' /etc/X11/xorg.conf


and also post here the output of the command "ddcprobe".

Just giving this a nudge in case it's slipped Dougal's mind (what with all that other stuff he's doing)

Try for now running in VESA mode.
In order for you to use xorg, you will have to edit manually the xorg.conf file,
and add a section with the correct modline settings that your link is showing to it....
It should run fine under the vesa driver...

Ok, I have a few suggestions. (BTW, it was a good idea to remind me... I myself don't know how many things I'm in the middle of at the moment.)

First, there's the slight chance of a problem with the "via" module. You could try the "tweak" option and select to use the "vesa" module instead.

That might also be done by just modifying the line in xorg.conf where the module is mentioned, then restarting X.

Which brings me to another, more basic idea: have you tried to run in 800x600, then manually change that value in xorg.conf to 1024x768 and restart X, see what happens?

In both cases it would be a good idea to look at /tmp/xerrs.log and see what you find in there (if X fails to run you should look at it from the commandline, as xerrs.log log will be overwritten the next time you start X.

Another thing is that after you run the xorgwizard, you'll find the file /tmp/xorg.conf.new, which is what the Xorg probing gave. Please look in it and see what the values of HorizSync and VertRefresh.
See if those values exist at all and if so, do they match the ones you find in the xorg.conf generated by the wizard...

One more useful thing would be the output of
Code:
Xvesa -listmodes
