Re: Help with SS20/SX (cg14) on woody
I had a very similar issue, I sovled the screen aspect by setting the
default depth at 32bbp:
I'm using the cg14 driver:
I still have a problem with the screen layout though, I can't seem to get
the real estate correct. There are repeating sectors witin the active
desktop. I suspect it's a resolution frailty with the driver, as it does
not seen to be completely usable or documented.
If you get it working please let me know.
