RE: [K12OSN] LTSP Install Problems-HELP!

I tried a clean install with a different monitor and it worked!

So the  KDS monitor doesn't work but the Brand X monitor does. The problem
is I have 3 KDS monitors and I need to make them work. They  are 15" KDS
5251 monitors. They can display HiRes (1024x768). The KDS monitors work fine
on the server, just not on the workstation. When I did the reinstall the
Horiz. Sync 30-55KHz was selected, and the Vert. Sync was 50-90H. As I said
the KDS monitor works fine on the server.

I added the X-RES line but it had no effect with the KDS monitor on the

I am glad I'm starting to have some success with this. Each problem is an
opportunity to learn more about Linux.

I wonder what it takes to get these KDS monitors to perform on the

Yes, but I would have thought the line should be...

         X_RES_0 = 800x600

(instead of X_RES_1 = 800x600)

You might even try...

        X_COLOR_DEPTH  = 8

to force it to 256 colors in case higher color depth gives a problem
(which doesn't sound like the case here).

Give that a try.
