My dec3000 is now displaying on its native monitor (good bye serial
console), but I have a few questions....
1. I'm using the TCWSCONS kernel and the text seems to only
occupy the middle of the monitor, e.g. there is a 2-3inch
border of unused monitor space around the edge of the display.
Is this normal? Is there some way to set the dimensions of my
2. What about X? I saw the binary Xserver in the archives, but it
is unclear what I do with this.
3. Could someone post their XF86Config. Or explain how I can determine
the video/monitor specs of this machine? Are there any config
tools to auto-generate the XF86Config file (xf68Setup, etc)?
4. If I wished to compile X for myself the sentiment was that I needed
a newer version of the x source code that that which came with 1.5,
where do I find this (cvs version?)?
Thank you all for your help
