I have 1.4.1 installed on a number of I386 boxes with Trio-64+ (1mb) cards
using the 'S3 Trio 64 (generic) driver with 'no RAMDAC' and
'no clock-chip-speed' - and it works well with generic (SVGA 1024x768 @ 70Hz,
50-70 Hz vertical synch selections) displays.
But when I switch to an HP as above or similar, the boxes don't sync
properly - so I can't even read the startup messages - I just see broken
scrolling bits of green, then white text.
Can someone assist please - perhaps I need to change something on the card
(how?) - or buy a new card (what?). The connection into the HP display is a
three-coax thing - which works well with NCD or HP Xstations.
I would also like to plug these HP displays into one of my (several) Sparc-IPX
boxes. Can anyone let me know how I can make/acquire an appropriate cable
