X11 Resolution - not read from xorg.conf
I am having problems with changing my resolution. In my /etx/X11/xorg.conf file, I have the Display Modes section set to include the resolutions 1280x1024, 1024x768, and 800x600. However, when I try to use xrandr to change the resolution from the 800x600 that it defaults to, it only allows me to choose between 800x600 and 640x480. When I use startx to go into WindowMaker, it says it is using the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file, so it should work. I also know for a fact that my monitor can handle higher resolutions. I have tried changing all the x config files I could find to include the proper resolutions, but it doesn't work.
My only guesses are that it is autodetecting the hardware incorrectly, rather than using the values in the file. This may have something to do with the fact that I am running this on a laptop with an external monitor hooked up (the built in one cracked).
Please post any ideas on how to get into a decent resolution. Regards,
