Setting HOC / VOC used by xbvset manually to XF86Config
Posted: Tue Nov 25, 2003 6:30 pm
Where can I set the HOC VOC values in XF86Config without using xbvset ?
This edit from my existing config which runs X at 1024x768 but doesn't fill my monitor... is the answer in the ModeLine ?
Identifier "Generic Monitor"
vendorname "[Generic Monitor]"
modelname "[Generic Monitor]"
ModeLine "1024x768/60Hz" 65 1024 1032 1176 1344 768 771 777 806 -HSync -VSync

Do you mean monitor like a computer monitor or monitor like a television. If you mean television you won't be able to get 1024x768 on a normal TV. There is no way you'd be able to read the text.

It is a Hitachi 42" plasma diplay , input is RGB scart from XBOX>SVideo converter > SVideo in to display. I know I could use RGB VGA but that would fv<k up my home theatre set-up.
I am successfully running 1024 x 768 thru svideo and I just want to fill the screen rather than have black border around the window.
Thanks for replying
Over to you ...

The answer is yes it is in the modeline........but are you using xbv?
If you are it has some neat routines to calculate HOC and VOC.....

To be fair,I am really not sure what I am doing !! But this is the order in which things go wrong then right. (I have changed X settings for all users as root in a KDE wizard).
Gentoox X starts up from evox as garbled. I kill X(C_A_B), restart X and window is fine in 1024x768 ... this is set at 60Hz which according to my display manual is one of many supported modes (in RGB VGA) but remember I am inputting through S-Video.
So answer is probably no, I am not displaying successfuly with xbv, and it is being killed 2nd start of X. BTW, I have been away from Linux for some years and have forgotten where basic services initiation file is e.g. where is command startX scripted and how do I kill the XKeyboard now that I have just plugged in a shiny new USB one and so don't need the GUI version anymore.

Right for your modeline try http://xtiming.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/xtiming.pl
I think .startx is in /home/gentoox/ and /root/
Look at the tutorials and search the forums as this stuff has come up before

The file you need to stop xvkbd starting is /home/gentoox/.xinitrc
also change /root/.xinitrc and /etc/skel/.xinitrc to cover root and any future users you add.
