PSone, epia 5000, Xorg.conf help
I did the vga mod (succesfully?) to my psone lcd.
I am trying to run it on my epia 5000 motherboard, using linux.
I haven't seen any threads where people have said whether this motherboard supports composite sync.
My attempts to use the modeline from here (for the epia 800):
(xorg reports "no screens found.")
---this results from changing only the HorizSync and VertRefresh lines. (hadn't added the modeline yet; but still fails after this too.)
and I dont know what rest of the xorg.conf file needs.
In console using the boot option vga=0x301, and X (using a generic 640x480x16 xorg.conf file), the psone screen displays two screens side by side (both squished to fit), and at the top of the screen it looks like a stiff wind is blowing(bending) the picture, shifting it. The colors are also off somewhat. I can see xfce good enough to move the mouse to the exit button, but thats about it.
An attempt to run xvidtune on the epia 5000 (using a different monitor) resulted in a message like "video device does not support tuning".
thread continues in linux forum
Any further posts on this topic from me will be in the linux forum as I think it is mostly a software issue now:
