display problems neomagic 2070 on xfree86 3.3.6
Posted on 2003-03-24
I have a dell latitude xpi p133st laptop with 40MB.
The video card is a neomagic 2070 and I have 896K of video memory.
I am using the LCD (internal monitor)
I have the graphical interfacing running fine at 800x600, but it is only running at 8bpp. I'd like to run at 16bpp or higher. (From what I've read, 800x600 at 16bpp is about all I'll get.) [1028x768 would be ideal, but I don't think it'll happen.]
I've tried tweaking the xf86config settings many, many times... but nothing.
So I guess I'm wondering...
Is it even possible to get this version of xfree86 working at 800x600 at 16bpp...
and if so, how?
