part 2 the test
After a while fiddling with the laptop I came to the conclusion that the stock (nv) driver would not run in 640x480, the
(nv) driver would not run in 640x480 and Nvidia official drivers would not run in 640x480 without severe blurring on all
vertical edges and so I was left with the stock vesa driver which did run in 640x480 (with a virtual 800x600 screen) but has
with the vertical scrolling.
The image seems to swap pixels and every 8 or so (have not counted), then the screen appears perfect but keep scrolling and it goes bad again.
Still it was usable and best of all X allows true 6bit color mode (64 colors) but whats bad is a number of X applications need at least 8 bit grrr. And one thing X has never been able to do is switch depth on the fly.
I could easily read webpages and other text and although slightly disorientating at first it did not give me a "head ache" as other such devices are reported to do to reviewers.
Time for some fun, I setup the XBox into DVD mode and put on futurama and some earphones and kept working while watching, very cool, bit entangled with cables but cool.
I am currently in the process of getting a web cam to work ont the laptop so I can see round corners or what is behind me (very important).

(more pages as I add them
Although my f-log is not just about the SV-3 or installing/maintaing Linux or trying to quieten my system it does contain the these and many other random ramblings I feel fit to regergitate to the web.
