mach32info(1)          Svgalib User Manual          mach32info(1)

NAME
       mach32info  -  read  out  configuration  information  of a
       Mach32

SYNOPSIS
       mach32info {info|force}

DESCRIPTION
       mach32info prints out  almost  all  the  info  about  your
       mach32  card  from configuration registers and Mach32 EEP-
       ROM. It also measures the Mach32 clocks. A completely idle
       system  is required when these measurements are being per-
       formed. During these measurements, the video signals  will
       be screwed up for about 3-4 seconds.

       If  your  monitor does not switch off when getting a video
       signal it can't stand (fixed freq. monitors) better switch
       it off before starting mach32info. Your computer will beep
       when it is finished probing.  You can redirect  the  'std-
       out'  of  mach32info  to some file for viewing the results
       easier or mailing them.

       Do not redirect 'stderr' as you won't hear the beep.

       This tool is part of svgalib. Although it's  output  maybe
       useful  to  debug Xfree86 Mach32 Servers, I am NOT related
       to Xfree86!  Please do not send me  (Michael  Weller)  any
       Xfree86 bug reports!  Thanx in advance.

       Note that this tool comes without any warranty!  Use it at
       your own risk!

       Warning, this tool does not check  for  VC  changes  etc..
       Just  let  it  run  in its own virtual console as root and
       don't try to fool it.  Actually this  is  due  to  it  not
       using svgalib at all but simply accessing the Mach32.

       Please report any problems with running mach32info or with
       configuring the  svgalib(7)'s  Mach32  driver  to  Michael
       Weller    <eowmob@exp-math.uni-essen.de>.    Include   the
       results from running this test with your report.

OPTIONS
       info   print out the  configuration  information.  Without
              info  mach32info  prints  a  usage message (looking
              almost like this manpage ;-)).

       force  The force option disables  the  sanity  check  that
              tries to detect the presence of the mach32 prior to
              printing the information.

              Do not use  this  option  unless  you  are  really,
              really  sure  that you have a Mach32 compatible vga
              card installed.

       This utility is part of svgalib and can be  found  in  the
       mach32/ subdirectory of the original svgalib distribution.
       However, it is  not  installed  by  default,  s.t.  it  is
       unclear  where you can find it if your svgalib was install
       by a linux distribution.

       In case of any such problem, simply get an svgalib distri-
       bution  from  the  net. You don't need to install it. Just
       make in  the  mach32/  subdirecty.  As  of  this  writing,
       svgalib-1.2.12.tar.gz  is  the  latest  version and can be
       retrieved    by    ftp     from     sunsite.unc.edu     at
       /pub/Linux/libs/graphics     and     tsx-11.mit.edu     at
       /pub/linux/sources/libs which will most probably  be  mir-
       rored by a site close to you.
