Back to basics. I'm currently switching between my old backup xorg
(which had 800x600 working fine) and the modified one that I'm working
on to keep the misses happy when she wants TV.
I'm now humbly just trying to get 800x600 at 60Hz working as I know that
works fine when edid is enabled.
I've tried setting the mode to "800x600" with no modeline, but that
I went to http://xtiming.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/xtiming.pl and tried to
produce a mode line based on this info from my BenQ W100 manual:
Supported timing for PC input
Horizontal Vertical Pixel
Resolution Frequency Frequency Frequency Mode
(kHz) (Hz) (MHz)
800 x 600 37.879 60.317 40.000 SVGA_60
The mode line it returned was:
|Modeline "800x600 at 60" 38.44 800 832 976 1008 600 612 618 631
this didn't work.
I remembered someone saying that the first number should be the same as Pixel Frequency, so tried editing to
||Modeline "800x600 at 60" 40.00 800 832 976 1008 600 612 618 631
That hasn't worked.
I just don't know what to do with this. I keep expecting a breakthrough, but nothing's coming.
