Thread: vfc on O2

  1. vfc on O2

    Ive been trying to use my O2 (R5K-180) with a SUN GDM 1962 monitor.
    This should be able to handle 1152x900_76 or 1280x1024_76.
    These aren't of course standard resolutions for the O2 and so ive been
    trying to use vfc to make them.

    Problem is that I don't have mipsPRO compillers and so whenever I try to run
    the makefile, it just complains. Can I use gmake to do this? If so, how
    would I do it.

    Thanks for any help

    James

    I can't help you with vfc, but a 1280x1024@76 setting can be set with
    setmon just fine.

    well, I *thought* it had 1280x1024@76, but it hasn't, only 75 Hz. Sorry.

    Will this work? I'm not too familiar with the o2 in particular, but I
    know the gdm-1962 quite well, and as I recall, it won't take anything but
    composite sync. Doesn't the o2 output only sync-on-green or separate?

    The O2 puts out sync on most things, since it can work with SGI monitors and
    also normal PC monitors straight away. So I guess this is composite sync.

    Yes and no.

    Composite sync *on green*, and split H- and V-sync on separate pins.
