Re: xorg.conf resolution issues



I have added other resolutions to the list that system-config-display provided. I don't know how it creates the list, but there were some that were left out.

I would like to know how to define the sweep frequencies that are associated with a resolution.  Is this information coming from the monitor? 

UBUNTU supports some sweep frequencies that are not showing in Fedora's list for the same resolutions. With UBUNTU I can get the screen to full width and height, without overshoot or undershoot. With Fedora, I have to skip that resolution as the two sweep frequency options are under/over  (60 / 85 ).  Frustrating to not know what to search for in google for problem resolution.

We're moving towards having X autoconfigure itself based on what the
hardware says it can do. This works in the most common cases. However,
with a KVM switch between the system and the monitor, it may not be
possible for the video card to get information from the monitor about
the resolutions and scan rates it supports (EDID), so you'll need to
supply that information in an /etc/X11/xorg.conf file -- either by
creating one manually or by using a config tool (system-config-display,
X -configure, nvidia-settings, ...).
