X vs. monitor
I´m using xserver-svga (3.3.6-11potato) with a ViewSonic G800 monitor,
"powererd" by an S3 Virge-based 4 MB RAM gfx-card.
I ran XF86Setup and entered the h/vsync rates, chose 1600x1200x16bpp
(which, if I did the math correctly, fits nicely in 4 MB RAM), started
the X-server and the monitor blanked out. I then had to remotely reboot
the machine because it wouldn´t take input from the keyboard any more.
It runs fine in 1280x1024x16bpp, though, only the onscreen menu reports
a refresh rate of 76 Hz, where it should do 80 Hz.
Any ideas/hints/FMs to read?
