Ian was helpful with pointing me to IBM´s website, meanwhile I´ve found
the "proper" info on that monitor. It is -frankly- that IBM itself
doesn´t know. ;-( All I got is EGA, CGA supported (although it wouldn´t
show any sync in DOS mode) and I got 1024x768 by 67 Hz, which is not
much. They do not give any clock rates that are the basic input for any
successful XF86 setup.
The monitor is currently anchored at another collegue that want´s it
working on winXX (good luck!) As soon as it starts floating again, I´ll
make sure it floats into my direction.
I know, that XF86 is very flexibel, but you need technical data that I
havn´t got. I expect some S3 Win based tools (i.e. comes with Elsa
cards) to be helpful, and a tool we used with 3.11 to set registers for
the Compaq´s we got in 1997 since there were no drivers for 3.11
This baby is about 34kg and I don´t like to carry it for nothing....,
since it might still be broken.
PS: Larry (Yates) are you still on this thread? Do you still need info
on that cirquit for tricking the sync??? Let me know!
