Aight...here we go.

Is there any one that has the technical specs for the 17" Studio Display?
..or..
Does anyone have their XF86Config-4 settings to share who has this desplay equipped? I know it can work with Linux as I've had it up and running with YDog6 but with gentoo, i have yet to crack this case...I'll bet that I'm not the only one here that wants this display to work...i couldn't find any posts that help out much in any regard.

My current symptoms include being able to view yaboot but nothing past. Once the machine boots to gentoo, I get three flashes of the power light on the base of the screen indicating a most obvious error.

I set the machine up using a Dell trinitron CRT and understand that its settings won't work for the 17. Apple's site has no useful tech specs.

Thanks!!

Emerge Xeasyconf will get you started.

The below is using a radeon 9800 pro SE in a G5 DP 1.8 with a Studio Display 17 Flat Panel. I've been struggling with acceleration for a couple of weeks. I get 24depth color with 2.6 kernels but only 8 with 2.4 kernels. AGPGART tells me the uninorth controller is NOT supported, even though its built in to the kernel.(?)

It looks like the problem with 2.6 kernels and acceleration is that there is no driver support currently. : (

Anyway, HTH:
