I-INC 19" flat screen 1440x900 resolution problem


Greetings,

I've been running opensuse 10.3 and 11.0.

I've got a I-INC 19" flat screen monitor with an ATI 9600 all-in-wonder(128) video card.

Had a problem getting native resolution of 1440x900 to work right. I'd get a distorted image with a vertical black bar on both the left and right of the image.

I found the problem. It's in the modeline.
In the first number after the 1440x900 in the modeline. It is off by a decimal.
sax2 makes this number 106. It should be 106.5.

Here's a copy of my working "xorg.conf" file.

Best
Andrew

I don't know about OpenSuse, but I had a similar problem with my monitor (I’m running Slackware). Before starting up X in the shell I used xorgsetup. It’s easy to use and it fixed all my monitor problems, completely changed my xorg.conf file.

Hope this helps
