I've been thinking about a DSL HD install on a 1997 vintage HP Kayak desktop. Before going through the pain of partitioning the HD, I've been testing things out using the DSL floppy/USB install.
The PC has a matrox millenium II agp graphics card. If I leave the PC for a while, it appears that some sort of monitor/graphics card energy saving kicks in - the screen goes blank and will not come back on.
I tried "xset s off off" to turn off any screen blanking with the result that, after a period of inactivity, the system freezes with the display still on.
If I try "xset q", apart from stating that the screen blanking is off, there is a message that DPMS is not enabled/available (or something like that)
I am using the default DSL X windows, is there way to either use or disable DPMS with this?
