request_refresh_rate(3alleg4) Allegro manual request_refresh_rate(3alleg4)NAME
request_refresh_rate - Requests a specific refresh rate during graphic mode switch. Allegro game programming library.
void request_refresh_rate(int rate);
Requests that the next call to set_gfx_mode() try to use the specified refresh rate, if possible. Not all drivers are able to control this
at all, and even when they can, not all rates will be possible on all hardware, so the actual settings may differ from what you requested.
After you call set_gfx_mode(), you can use get_refresh_rate() to find out what was actually selected. At the moment only the DOS VESA 3.0,
X DGA 2.0 and some Windows DirectX drivers support this function. The speed is specified in Hz, eg. 60, 70. To return to the normal default
selection, pass a rate value of zero. Example:
if (set_gfx_mode(GFX_AUTODETECT, 640, 480, 0, 0) != 0)
abort_on_error("Couldn't set graphic mode!");
if (get_refresh_rate() != 60)
abort_on_error("Couldn't set refresh rate to 60Hz!");

I'm trying to install a PGX32 video card on my Sparc 10 Ultra running Solaris 10.
I've got the Oracle installation guide for it and I got as far as:

I'm writing a short script to check if a continuous port is running on a server.

return code from the command or if its better to pipe to... (12 Replies)
I installed NetBSD 6.1.2 amd64 and can't find the apm utility. Is it not in the base system?
Is it necessary to recompile the default amd64 kernel to use apm?
Or is there a new method for power management and suspend/resume? (2 Replies)
