Orchid Fahrenheit ProVideo 64
I'm a new Debian user. I just installed 0.93R6 4 weeks ago and
upgraded to 1.1 last week following Dale's instructions. My system is
now up to date but I have problems configuring my Orchid Fahrenheit
ProVideo 64 video card.
This card uses the S3 Vision 968 Chipset, whith a Bt485 RAMDAC and
an ICD2061A ClockChip. I had to specify these in my XF86Config file
since SuperProbe doesn't detect the Ramdac and ClockChip.
Now when I startx, my screen turns black and after a few seconds, my
monitor turns to power save mode. I can't get back to text mode even
with <Ctrl> <Alt> <Backspace>. I'm forced to shutdown my computer
using <Ctrl> <Alt> <Del> (and power it off/on) in order to get my
monitor display things again.
I tried the stb_pegasus option in my config file. With this setting,
I was able to startx and exit using the <Ctrl> <Alt> <Backspace>
sequence which correctly returned to text mode. But my english is not
rich enough to describe what I had on my display after starting X :-)
I also tried with the 3.1.2D version of XF86_S3 but it didn't work
I know this problem is not Debian-specific but if someone around
