Unhappy ATI - Bad Resolution on KDM Login Screen (XFree86 4.3)


I installed ATI drivers and in KDM login screen resolution is 1920x1080. That resolution is nowhere in XF86Config-4. Here's my XF86Config-4:


# XF86Config-4 (XFree86 X Window System server configuration file)
#
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.
#
# Edit this file with caution, and see the XF86Config-4 manual page.
# (Type "man XF86Config-4" at the shell prompt.)
#
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xfree86 package upgrades *only*
# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xfree86
# package.
#
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
# again, run the following commands as root:
#
# cp /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 /etc/X11/XF86Config-4.custom
# md5sum /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 >/var/lib/xfree86/XF86Config-4.md5sum
# dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86

What is this Option "NoDDC". I've read somewhere that it can set my resolution but it didn't help me.. Can anyone please tell me how to make KDM Login Scrn use 1152x864 (my resolution)?

I do not think you can change the KDM resolution. What ever the display for video card number one is, is what kdm inherits.
