Re: [K12OSN] Cirrus 5424

I looked at the http://www.ltsp.org/contrib/modelines.html doc and one of the things it mentions is putting multiple X_MODE settings in the lts.conf file, which should allow the user to try different resolutions on the client by using Ctrl-Alt-Plus, at least that's what I'm inferring. Have you actually gotten this work? While I can make it work on the server console, I've never gotten it to work on the client. There was some discussion on the list a while back in which some others also discovered that it was not working on the client, and at the time, no one stepped forward to say they had gotten it to work. I'd LOVE to have it work, but haven't been able to do so yet. Does it really work for you? TIA.

If you are trying to use a machine with a cirrus-logic chipset,
and load a full RH9 on that machine, i'd say forget it.

But, if you have a RH9 server with LTSP, and you are trying
to setup a workstation with a CL5424, then you should be
able to get that working.  The fact that your server is RH9,
shouldn't have any effect on it.

Have a look at this doc:


It might offer the info you need to get it working.

Hi all!

I saw a message about using a 486 with a Cirrus 5424 chipset and O told the poster that I had one of those working. Well, I *did* have it working under RH7.3 K12LTSP2.something but I can't get it to work under RH9 K12LTSP3.1.0

Any Ideas?

Rh 7.3 used the 3.x series for Xfree, but 9 (and therefore K12LTSP) uses
4.3.0. If you look at http://www.xfree86.org/current/Status9.html#9, you
will see that your 5424 is no longer supported.
