X server error on 7200
I just installed woody on my 7200 with a 15'' multiple scan display. For the
x window, I installed xserver-common, xerver-fbdev, xbase-client, xfs-xtt,
xfonts-base, xfonts-100,75 scalabe. as well as the icewm window manager. The
default XF86Config does not work until I change the default mode from
640x480 to 832x624. Then the x start smoothly and it didn't complain
The weird problem is that if I sit infront of the computer and use it, the x
server never crash. But once I leave the computer for 10 minutes, the screen
turned black(the display has energy saving feature) and after I hit the
keyboard, I found the x server was already down and I was told
Fatal server error:
fbdevUpdateColormap: FBIOPUTCMAP failed(Function not implemented)
First I doubt it is because of the fbdev server, I removed the 3.3.6 fbdev
server of debian and replace it with a 220.127.116.11 fbdev server aliened from
linuxppc, same problem occured. I installed linuxppc with kde on this
machine before and x server never crash.So it seems it is not the fbdev
It seems the problem is mainly related to the energy saving feature of the
screen, but I am not sure.
Does anybody has any idea?
Thanks a lot!
