 Tecra 8100 video
Author: Jay

I'm trying to get XFree 3.6.6 working on my Toshiba Tecra 8100 running FreeBSD 4.2. I've downloaded xf86svga.freebsd.tgz from and replaced the existing XF86_SVGA file in the /usr/X11R6/bin directory. I've tried different configurations without any luck. Can someone please provide step by step for XF86Setup? Thank you in advance.

Did you try the stock XF*SVGA file supplied during the install?

I am using a Gateway Solo 5100 laptop
and it has the the Savage MX/IX Video chip.

Using the stock XF*SVGA file supplied with the 4.2 BSD
the video seems to be working perfectly
(Monitor == Non-Interlaced SVGA during XF86Setup)

I also installed Linux on the unit and then tried to
use the XF*SVGA file from that web page and all I get is
a blank screen. :(

What is the problem? Monitor fails to show image, server fails to load? Memory / Seg fault?
