SGI 1600SW Monitor
I have an SGI 1600SW monitor I'm trying to use with Fedora Core 2.6.8. I'm having a bit of trouble... xwindows won't start because the monitor isn't configured properly. My text-only terminals works fine, but they only use about a fifth of the 1600X1024 screen. I heard there was some way to mess with the timing that would make it work but I don't know how to do that.
the file to look at for your X setup is /etc/X11/xorg.conf .
The parts of this fiule that are of interest to you are the Monitor and the Screen sections. Check that the horizontal and vertical frequencies are within the limits of your monitor (check out the monitor's docs to find these figures out).
ps. also have a look at the tutorial section of this forum for the X86Config tutorial.
