First of all, thanks for the quick reply. On Sun, 24 Aug 2008 03:23:34 +0000, "Christopher Joyner" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > Maybe you could open your Xorg config file, and put in specific variables in > there for the graphic mode you use. This would cut down on auto detection > scripts.
I don't have auto detection for regular X init. I did this only one time to see the new layout of xorg.conf, then put everything in it manually (e. g. Screen, Keyboard, Device Card0, Card1). This brings up another problem: With FreeBSD 5 + XFree86 my monitor, Eizo FlexScan F980 21" CRT, could have 1400x1050; that's not possible anymore with FreeBSD 7 + Xorg, only 1152x864 is available, even if I force certain modes (PrefferedMode and ModeLines), in this case the system isn't accessible anymore, and the screen shows a complete nonsense dimension (1200x600 or so). So my xorg.conf settings are completely standard stuff. I've played with xrandr and even got the desired mode for one time, but with a virtual screen (content scrolls). % xrandr Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1152 x 864, maximum 1400 x 1050 VGA-0 connected 1152x864+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 0mm x 0mm 1152x864 75.0*+ 1400x1050 74.8 60.0 1280x1024 85.0 75.0 60.0 1280x960 85.0 60.0 1152x768 54.8 1024x768 85.0 75.0 70.1 60.0 832x624 74.6 800x600 85.1 72.2 75.0 60.3 56.2 640x480 85.0 72.8 75.0 59.9 720x400 85.0 640x400 85.1 640x350 85.1 DVI-0 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) S-video disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) % xvidtune Vendor: EIZO, Model: FlexScan F980 Num hsync: 1, Num vsync: 1 hsync range 0: 30.00 - 137.00 vsync range 0: 50.00 - 160.00 % gears libGL warning: 3D driver claims to not support visual 0x6b 2101 frames in 5.001 seconds = 420.116 FPS 2846 frames in 5.000 seconds = 569.200 FPS 3000 frames in 5.000 seconds = 600.000 FPS % geartrain libGL warning: 3D driver claims to not support visual 0x6b 1226 frames in 5.002 seconds = 245.102 FPS 1238 frames in 5.002 seconds = 247.501 FPS 1224 frames in 5.003 seconds = 244.653 FPS % gearbox libGL warning: 3D driver claims to not support visual 0x6b 147 frames in 5.029 seconds = 29.230 FPS 168 frames in 5.015 seconds = 33.500 FPS 168 frames in 5.019 seconds = 33.473 FPS Are these values realistic? > In the hand book it tells you how to configure the X server.

X runs fine, but slooooow, read: it worked much faster before. > I really do not think your hardware is the problem, but rather the > configuration. I'm just asking because... it worked with XFree86, why can't it work the same way with Xorg? I update my software to make things faster, not slower. :-) -- Polytropon >From Magdeburg, Germany Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0 Andra moi ennepe, Mousa, ... _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
