glibc systems:- 1) get the file to your system cd /tmp ftp://ftp.redhat.com/pub/XFCom/XFCom-neomagic-glibc-2.0.0-1.i386.rpm 2) install the files using RPM rpm -ivh XFCom-neomagic-glibc-2.0.0-1.i386.rpm 3) after installing run (as root): ln -sf /usr/X11R6/bin/XFCom_NeoMagic /etc/X11/X mv /etc/X11/XF86Config /etc/X11/XF86Config.old cp /etc/X11/XF86Config.neomagic /etc/X11/XF86Config libc5 systems:- 1) get the file to your system cd /tmp ftp://ftp.redhat.com/pub/XFCom/XFCom-neomagic-libc5-2.0.0-1.i386.rpm 2) install the files using RPM rpm -ivh XFCom-neomagic-libc5-2.0.0-1.i386.rpm 3) after installing run (as root): ln -sf /usr/X11R6/bin/XFCom_NeoMagic /etc/X11/X chmod 4711 /usr/X11R6/bin/XFCom_NeoMagic mv /etc/X11/XF86Config /etc/X11/XF86Config.old cp /etc/X11/XF86Config.neomagic /etc/X11/XF86Config
1). The startx file can be found in /usr/X11R6/bin directory, or you can do a "locate startx" 2). Change the reference ' serverargs="" ' to ' serverargs="-bpp 24" ' (about 24 lines from the top). 3). The next time you issue the startx command you will be running at the maximum resolution.
1). Edit /etc/bashrc and put an alias in that file, on a line at the end of the file: 'alias xinit="xinit -- -bpp 24" ' (The extra "--" is not a mistatke by the way). 2). The next time you log in and execute xinit you will be in the 24 bpp mode.
1). You will have to use loadlin to boot to linux (after booting up dos and the sound DOS driver has put the sound card in sbPRO compatible mode) get the driver and read the readme I am sorry if you happened upon my page before this update, if you got the file before 2/16/99 10:00am CST you need to get this new one (I put the wrong file here) 2). Get this .config (2.0.34) for a base config of your kernel -or- just compile the kernel with these options enabled: (M) Sound card support Old configuration script (For: SM Wave, PSS & AudioTrix Pro) [*] /dev/dsp and /dev/audio support [*] MIDI interface support (M) FM synthesizer (YM3812/OPL-3) support ( ) ProAudioSpectrum 16 support (M) Sound Blaster (SB, SBPro, SB16, clones) support (M) Generic OPL2/OPL3 FM synthesizer support If you dont want to fool with compiling the kernel get this file which containes the kernel and module files (just put the "2.0.34" and the "preferred" dirs in your /lib/modules dir and you are ready to go) 3). After compiling and installing the modules edit the /etc/conf.modules file to say: #options alias sound sb options -k sb io=0x220 irq=5 dma=1 alias midi opl3 options -k opl3 io=0x388 4). Edit the /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit file to comment out the section that automatically checks for dependencies. this is because when booting linux does not have a copy of the kernel to check dependencies from and it makes a modules.dep file that is empty. What you are looking for starts out like: if [ -x /sbin/depmod -a -n "$USEMODULES" ]; then and continue commenting the lines out untill you reach the end of the if statement (fi) 5). do a "depmod -a" 6). Reboot (using loadlin after running the sound driver in DOS) 7). Run "sndconfig" and select sb PRO and other settings like above and YOU HAVE SOUND! (this is a verification of setup)
