    Samsung 930B LCD under linux?


    HI all,
    I need to configure this monitor and I'm at a loss. On bootup, my entire screen shifts to the left and stays that way until I loadup X. In X, my fonts are now crappy and hard to read. I change the refresh rates as to what sansung's website stated, but am still having problems....
    Here's my XF86CONFIG file.....


    Code:
    Section "ServerLayout"
            Identifier     "Layout0"
            Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
            InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
            InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Files"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Module"
            # Load "freetype"
            # Load "xtt"
            Load  "extmod"
            Load  "glx"
            #Load  "dri"
            Load  "dbe"
            Load  "record"
            Load  "xtrap"
            Load  "type1"
            Load  "speedo"
    EndSection
    
    Section "InputDevice"
            Identifier  "Mouse0"
            Driver      "mouse"
            Option      "Protocol" "Auto"
            Option      "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
            Option      "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
            Option      "Emulate3Button" "no"
    EndSection
    
    Section "InputDevice"
            Identifier  "Keyboard0"
            Driver      "keyboard"
            Option      "XkbModel" "pc101"
            Option      "XkbLayout" "us"
    EndSection

            #Card        "nv GeForce4 Ti 4800 SE"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Screen"
            Identifier "Screen0"
            Device     "Card0"
            Monitor    "Monitor0"
            DefaultDepth     24
            SubSection "Display"
                    Depth     16
                    Modes    "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"

    Ok, I fixed the bootup problem and I'm guessing the fonts are coming from the 1024x768 mode. I popped up the font size and its fine. Basically, whether I run 1280x1024 or 1024x768, I get an image thats somewhat blurry and painful to look at. Though I'm using Samsung's refresh rates...is there something better out there for LCD's?

    My fonts are already configured. I need help with some better sync values because my eyes are starting to bleed...

    Samsung 930B LCD under linux troubles

    I just got a new Samsung 930B. I run RedHat 9, and have the same problems at bootup, and the fonts are blurry.

    How did you fix the bootup problem and change the fonts?

    Any help is appreciated. - Thanks

    For the bootup, simply adjust your monitor uses its own controls. In regards to the fonts: first, make sure that your sync ratios in xorg.conf are correct. Second, change your font size and start messing around with the resolution....

    Re: Samsung 930B LCD under linux troubles

    Thanks for the help.

    I now have things looking good when running X.

    But at bootup, if I shift things to the right with the monitor controls, then I assume the X stuff will be shifted right as well.

    I read somewhere else that the problem might have to do with the frame buffer. Maybe I can disable it during boot.

    If you shift the screen at bootup, it will NOT affect X.
