can't get desired xorg resolution with FreeBSD 7.0

I have a laptop with a Radeon Mobility card on which I've been running
FreeBSD 6.2 with Xorg 7.2 using a 1024x768 resolution.  On a different
slice of the same laptop, I installed FreeBSD 7.0/Xorg 7.3.  With the same
xorg.conf, X is coming up with a 1400x1050 resolution, which is too fine
for my eyes.

A google search led me to think that setting the desired resolution could
be done using xrandr, but the command:

  xrandr --fb 1024x768

gives an error message:

  xrandr: specified screen 1024x768 not large enough for output LVDS \
  (1400x1050+0+0)

First set the virtual screen size in xorg.conf:

Section "Screen"
        Identifier "Screen0"
        Device     "Card0"
        Monitor    "Monitor0"
        DefaultDepth 24
        SubSection "Display"
                Virtual    1024 768
        EndSubSection
EndSection

That may be all that's needed.  Otherwise, you might have to defeat DDC 
detection in the Device section or make other adjustments.

Thanks!  Adding the Virtual specification to xorg.conf fixed the problem.

By my reading of the xorg.conf man page, I don't think it should be
necessary, however - it states:

  If  this entry is not present, the virtual
  screen resolution will be set to accommodate all the valid video
  modes given in the Modes entry.

And in my case, the top resolution I had in the Modes line was 1024x768.
But, my problem's solved, so I'm happy.

Xorg 7.3 and xrandr 1.2 are different.  The documentation lags the 
implementation, you might say.  Anyway, the Virtual entry defines the 
screen, which doesn't have to be same resolution as the monitor. 
Multiple monitors can each display a part of the virtual screen.  That 
gives the multiple-monitor desktop that Xinerama used to provide.

Hello 1) I'm running W2k on PC called A ( it's not really named A, but for the sake of argument ...) and if my routing table has ( destionation )0.0.0.0 ( netmask )255.0.0.0 ( gateway )192.168.2.1 instead of ( destionation )0.0.0.0 (netmask)0.0.0.0 (gateway)192.168.2.1 then I can't get on internet. I know address 0.0.0.0 basically means "send the packet on internet", but why needs netmask be 0.0.0.0? Afterall, all that netmask 255.0.0.0 should tell A is that destination address is not on the same network as A is, and thus should send it to d...

Can't get PCI Network Card to Work
Hello, I have an IBM Pentium III 663MHz PC (desktop) which I've been trying to get a Linux Distro to work on with Networking successfully. I know it can be done, because this box has been loaded with an early version of Redhat and operated as a web server. I wanted to start fresh so I wiped the system clean with Redhat 8 - which was able to come up quickly and correctly detect the network card that was installed. However it could not "initialize" the card. I knew that Redhat 8 had some issues, so I installed Redhat 7.2. The results were the same. So know I've taken out the "big guns" - as it seems that Knoppix (4.0.2 in my case) will work with just about everything. But the results, sadly, are not much different. PCI is my only choice as the IBM only has PCI slots. I have two NICs that I've tried - and the results are pretty much the same: Card #1: This was the card that has been in there when the box was a web server - 3Com 10/100 TX Fast Etherlink XL PCI 2 - 3c905B-TX NM All three distros are able to probe the card correctly and select (what I would guess to be) the correct driver. I've tried toassign an IP through DHCP and also by assigning it a static IP - neither case worked. Card #2: (Test individually - not at the same time as card #1) - D-Link DFE-530TX REV-A1 All three distros were also able to select the correct driver for this card. I tried both DHCP and static IP. When I assigned the D...

However it could not "initialize" the card. I knew that Redhat 8 had some issues, so I installed Redhat 7.2. The results were the same. So know I've taken out the...

exmh 2.7.0: OK, 2.7.2: 'tkerror: can't read "pgp(pgp6,path)": no ...'
Hiya, I just upgraded to Mandriva 2007.0, which comes with exmh 2.7.2. I tried that, but I got one of those traceback windows and this in the xterm where I started exmh: exmh: tkerror: can't read "pgp(pgp6,path)": no ... exmh: tkerror: can't read "exwin(mtext)": no s ... I rebuilt my 2.7.0 exmh from my previous OS. It runs just fine. I'm running tcl-8.4.13 & tk-8.4.13, both shipped with Mandriva, if that matters. What could the problem be? Thanks.... -- PLEASE post a SUMMARY of the answer(s) to your question(s)! Show Windo...

Can't compile Samba ports under FreeBSD 6.0
Hi I made the mistake after upgrading from FreeBSD 5.4 to 6.0 to follow the instructions too closely: Eg. I did make delete-old-libs Anyway, most programs didn't work anymore due to missing libraries so I recompiled most of them. Samba is giving me problems, it doesn't compile and fails during configure with: checking for test routines... configure: error: cant find test code. Aborting config Google didn't return anything interesting always linked to rather old version of Samba (circ 2002). Any help would be appreciated. Thank you JY Jean-Yves Avena...

WWV audio driver, FreeBSD, Can't seem to get it going
Folks, I suspect that interest in drivers other than GPS and PPS are waning, in fact I have 3 GPS based servers as well, but thought I'd try something else. I have a Traconex 1020 WWV receiver used with driver 3 which works rather well, so I thought I would add the audio driver (36) to the mix. System is an older Dell workstation with FreeBSD 5.3. The NTP version is 4.2.0a-20050303, although I've tried others, and even BSD 5.4 The sound 'card' is on the motherboard. I did: kldload snd_driver which resulted in: May 19 19:57:01 Fuzzball kernel: pcm0: <Intel ICH2 (82801BA)...

Can't seem to get any functions to work in 7.8.0 Student
Hello everyone, I just installed a student version (7.8.0 R2009aSV) of Matlab on my MacBook and have activated it.

Could someone help me resolve this? Im not new to Matlab, just new to using Matlab on my own computers - I always had it on computers at work or school. Thanks!

Can't use my //e because I can't get any software for it
Here's my problem. I have an Apple //e, but I have absolutely no software for it. I have an older Mac. All of the images I have found are 5.25" and I can't write those back to the floppy using the Mac (or a PC for that matter). I don't have a null modem, but that doesn't matter because I don't have any comm software. Basically I have no way to get anything onto a bootable floppy. Now, if I could find a bootable image of a 3.5" disk I would be in business, but everything is in 5.25" format. Would an emaulator be able to create a bootable 3.5" di...

FC5, Xorg 7.1 and intel 945g -- can't get 1920x1200. pls help
I'm trying to get a new Conroe workstation up using a 945G motherboard and a Dell 2405fpw (1920x1200 LCD) monitor. Unfortunately, I'm at wit's end on how to get the LCD's native 1920x1200 res going with the i810 driver. Here's the rundown of what I've done so far: 1. The FC5 default driver (xorg-x11-drv-i810-1.4.1.3) couldn't do any better than 1280x1024 no matter what I tried. A brief search on google lead to pulling the 1.6 version from the development repo. (this brought along Xorg-1.1.1-47.fc6). I could now do resolutions higher than 1600x1200. 2. De...

Re: [ntp:questions] Re: WWV audio driver, FreeBSD, Can't seem to get it going #3
Dave, I think that there is little disagreement over this. Discussions on parameters and algorithms probably belong more in hackers rather than here but it doesn't matter a great deal. We recommend that people put the suggested changes in bugzilla so there's one place to go and it's easy to find, but all such issues need to go to you so you can review them and decide on the best course of action. Not all fixes that people recommend can be used under all circumstances so they always need careful review. Danny ----- Original Message Follows ----- > Harlan, > > We do indee...

Can't upgrade from 6.0 to 7.0
I've been trying to upgrade to or fresh install version 7.0 of the Acrobat Reader but can't get it to run. Version 6 is fine but if I try and do anything with version 7 it seems to do nothing (or perhaps it shuts down so quick nothing appears on screen?). I get no error messages or any events in the event logs. I've removed 7.0 and reinstalled 6.0 and all is well again. I'm at a complete loss as to how to proceed. Any ideas?

Isn't the answer *precisely* in your asking the question? Lisp is not used by "people who don't get it".

I'm working with a database developed by an untrained person over several years - and on a network that has recently been upgraded with a new server installed and MS office upgraded from 2K (I think - it might have been XP) to 2003. The database is impressive, both in what it does and the obtuse and inconsistent ways it works. There are several hundred queries, for example, with no indication of where they are used or if they are in fact necessary at all... The database is for the local Hospice service, and their entire operation is based on it - from patient records to donations. The ...
