I have an ancient machine, connected to an ancient proprietary SCSI scanner, using an equally ancient Viewsonic VGA CRT. When creating profiles with argyll I'm seeing a lot of strange errors like "Inverting Jacobian failed (3)" and such. I'm assuming this is due to the monitor's response curves being terrible. What settings can I use to minimize the amount of wackyness and produce something reasonable? (This machine's sole purpose is to pull things off the scanner and then print them to a large Epson, so think 'prepress' more so than 'home/office').

it has a certain smooth-brained appeal
