Take a look at this thread:
The tips (and explanations) are in this message:
That was with Slink (Xfree 3.3.2, IIRC); with Potato and Xfree 3.3.6 the
problem it's the same, but you only need to do the trick the first time
you run X; after this, you can go to text console, or suspend, and the
display is happy again when you go back to X.
In short, here is what I do the first time I enter X:
- Cycle the display selection (press <Fn-F5> three times)
- Resynchronize the display, switching video modes.
For this, I have a trick: I press Ctr-Alt-R; this make my window
manager to execute "xvidtune -next && xrefresh", to switch to the
next video mode (I have two 800x600 modes to switch between them)
and refresh the display
I don't know if Xfree 4.0.2 solves this problem (I'm getting some good
reports with display on Tecras); someone?
