crt monitor worked fine, new lcd doesn't (but is fine in windows)
i'm not sure how much this issue has been addressed, but it would be awesome if someone could shed some light on the scenario.
i've got a brand new samsung 245bw lcd monitor. i'd been using my 19" nec crt monitor for the past 7 years and decided an upgrade was in order.
in windows, it works flawlessly. yet under any distro of linux i've tried (just installed opensuse 11 today, which is what i'll stick with for now), it flickers and/or turns off for a few seconds with any rapid screen movement. sometimes before it shuts off for a few seconds, i will see what looks like poor resolution, coloured 1px lines scrambling across the screen, then it goes black...coming back a second or 2 later.
the most obvious guess i had was a refresh setting was off. but i can't seem to get it to work normally under any refresh rate.
here's my specs:
-samsung 245bw monitor, currently running @ 60hz, 1920x1200
-ati all in wonder 8500 (ancient, i know)
-ATI R200 QL driver
again, it runs flawlessly under windows....but on linux, it's rough. real rough. any thoughts?
