[K12OSN] XServer / Workstation Problem

I am the one who posted about turning off the acceleration. You might want
to try that. You're right about the acceleration option being inside the
XF86Config file. I created my own and set the XF86CONFIG_FILE = file.name in
the lts.conf file. If this doesn't work, you might want to change the
refresh rate for the resolution that doesn't work. You can do this by
putting in the X_MODE_0 = whatever_modeline option into the lts.conf file.
If you don't know how to make your own modeline, open up the XF86Config file
and copy the first modline you see for your desired resolution. I hope this
