Hello QNX gurus,
recently I downloaded 6.3 and installed it on a spare partition in my Thinkpad R51 laptop. It all installed smoothly and booted to Photon. However, the only video driver that actaully works is the VGA with the 600x480 resolution.
I’ve tried all other drivers and various resolutions, including the ‘radeon’ and ‘radeon 90’ drivers - they kinda work, meaning that I can see the screen being drawn correctly, but all that comes with a very intense flicker, one that makes it totally impossible to do any work.
Here is what ‘lspci -v’ tells me about my graphics card:
0000:01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon Mobility M7 LW [Radeon Mobility 7500] (prog-if 00 [VGA])
Subsystem: IBM: Unknown device 0530
Flags: bus master, stepping, fast Back2Back, 66MHz, medium devsel, latency 66, IRQ 11
Memory at e0000000 (32-bit, prefetchable) [size=128M]
I/O ports at 3000 [size=256]
Memory at c0100000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=64K]
Has anyone had any success with QNX on a Thinkpad?
Would anyone have any suggestions on how to configure the system to achieve anything better than 600x480 ?
thanks in advance,
