I have the above mentioned card (at least that's what X-probing tells me)
and I succesfully got vesa framebuffer working. If I use the 640x480 or
800x600 in 16 bit mode, I can see my X both on a computer screen and on
the TV screen, connected at the same time.
I tried getting the aty128fb device to work instead of the vesa
framebuffer device, but this fails : my TV screen goes blue (indicating no
signal) and I get nothing on my computer monitor. I tried the same modes,
as well as others.
My questions are :
1) I removed Vesa FB from the kernel for this, is that the right thing to
2) I have gathered from some newsgroup postings that the rage 128 fury pro
is different from both the rage 128 fury (regular) and the rage fury pro;
does this mean the aty128fb driver might not even work ?
3) Is there any other way than through framebuffer devices (which seems to
slow down X a lot more than when run with the native driver) to get tv-out
please reply to thomas@...
thanks in advance
if you ever lay a finger on my left side
if you ever lay a finger on me I will open
