I've been trying to use the IBMThinkPad760CDDisplayDriver to use the Trident Cyber 9320 chipset in my ThinkPad 365X on OPENSTEP 4.2. It loads the driver and detects the chipset (revision 3). When when it goes to resize the display and show the login window, the screen goes black. The hard drive sounds like it finishes up the boot but there is no video.

I've tried all of the display size/res options available in configure.app but no dice.

Any ideas?

EDIT - one thing I notice is that configure.app is showing 2MB VRAM but the 365X only has 1MB. Is there a way to change this? Do I need to change the memory maps?

EDIT 2 - I tried changing the Memory Maps from 0x03e00000-0x03ffffff to 0x03e00000-0x03efffff which changed it to 1024K but I still get a black screen when it initializes the display adapter (it does continue to boot to login).

Even though the 760CD uses the Trident Cyber9320 chipset like the 365X, it uses a TFT display. The 365X did have the option of a TFT display but the one that I'm attempting to install on has a passive-matrix DSTN display. Could this be the issue?

EDIT 3 - My mistake. I assumed the display was a DSTN. I took it apart and looked up the part number and it is a 10.4" active matrix TFT display. So now I am at a loss. Thank to anyone who has looked at this.

Just an update - I gave up on the Thinkpad 365X and bought a 560E. As has already been stated, the 560E is fully supported. I'm running mine with an Adaptec 1460 SCSI card and a 3COM Etherlink III card.

maybe you could use some kind of recent linux and check messages from Xorg startup. You should find the memory map probed by the driver.

As promised, here's the URL for the CT6555x driver that cubist provided:

http://kb7sqi.dyndns.org/files/misc/CT6555x.x86.Video.Driver/

There's a README included in the archive. Thanks again cubist! I'm sure others besides myself will be happy to use this driver for older laptops.

The link was dead. Can someone share the file?

Thank you! However, I couldn't find the driver itself.

I recently found the driver again when someone PM'd me. If someone will find a suitable place to store things and PM me, I'll email them the bits.

I can upload to our archive if you would like to email it to me at sales@blackholeinc.com I'm sure Jason won't mind as I spoke with him recently. Best regards Rob
