PostPosted: Thu 10 Apr 2008, 18:45    Post_subject:  km400 s-video  

Hi there.
I'm running Puppy 3.01 and I wonder if anyone here knows how to get the tv out working? I have a KM400 chipset with S-Video out, I have googled for hours and can't find anything good, so I hope someone here knows how to do it Smile
Right now I haveing 1024x768x16 resolution on my computer monitor that I congifured with xorg, that works fine! But the TV screen is black. Do I need anymore driver or something?
If you want you can look at my xorg.conf here:
Code:

Section "Module"
   Load "synaptics"

# This loads the DBE extension module.

    Load        "dbe"     # Double buffer extension

# This loads the miscellaneous extensions module, and disables
# initialisation of the XFree86-DGA extension within that module.
    SubSection  "extmod"
      Option    "omit xfree86-dga"   # don't initialise the DGA extension
    EndSubSection

# This loads the font modules
    Load        "type1"
    Load        "freetype"

# This loads the GLX module
    Load       "glx"
    Load       "dri"

# This loads xtrap extension, used by xrandr
    Load       "xtrap"

EndSection

# **********************************************************************
# Files section.  This allows default font and rgb paths to be set
# **********************************************************************

Section "Files"

# The location of the RGB database.  Note, this is the name of the
# file minus the extension (like ".txt" or ".db").  There is normally
# no need to change the default.

    RgbPath   "/usr/X11R7/lib/X11/rgb"

# Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (which are concatenated together),
# as well as specifying multiple comma-separated entries in one FontPath
# command (or a combination of both methods)

    FontPath   "/usr/X11R7/lib/X11/fonts/misc/"
    FontPath   "/usr/X11R7/lib/X11/fonts/Type1/"
    FontPath   "/usr/X11R7/lib/X11/fonts/TTF/"

EndSection

# **********************************************************************
# Server flags section.
# **********************************************************************

Section "ServerFlags"

# Uncomment this to disable the <Crtl><Alt><Fn> VT switch sequence
# (where n is 1 through 12).  This allows clients to receive these key
# events.

#    Option "DontVTSwitch"

# Enables mode switching with xrandr
# There is a report that this can cause Xorg not to work on some
# video hardware, so default is commented-out...
# but i want to use it in xorgwizard so leave on...

    Option "RandR" "on"

PostPosted: Fri 11 Apr 2008, 06:00    Post_subject: script  

Now it's working!
problem was, I couldn't have both devices active at the same time.
so I made 2 xorg.conf files

xorg.tv
xorg.notv

And then I did a simple script to switch between xorg files

Code:

#!/bin/bash

case $1 in
tv ) cp /etc/X11/xorg.tv /etc/X11/xorg.conf ;;
notv ) cp /etc/X11/xorg.notv /etc/X11/xorg.conf ;;
* ) echo
echo "Usage"
echo
echo " tv - use TV"
echo " notv - use LCD"
;;
esac


saved it as display
and put it in /usr/local/bin

then I did 2 shortcutscripts on the desktop:
display notv
display tv

then I have to restart X so the changes will take effect.. or CTRL+BACKSPACE
but can I add to the script so the X server will start automatically? So I dont have to press CTRL-BACKSPACE?? I know that sounds very lazy, hehe.. but I just want it to be perfect you know Smile Anyone knows??
