Can't get 1024x768 on SuSE 9.2 :(


Hi!
I've a problem configuring xf86config on SuSE 9.2. The only suitable resolution i made is 1200*1024 with 78 Hz. I need 1024*768 with 100 Hz. (same as in WinXP). I didn't have this problem in other distro's, but i really like SuSE.
I'm using Samsung 755DFX and GF 2MX 400. I tried xtiming, Sax2 but it didn't help. I also checked values from monitor manual but it didn't help too.
May be someone of you have the same hardware and post the modelines.

Thanks in advance.

I remember I used Mandrake and Suse when I first discovered Linux. I remember Suse's SAX (and SAX2) being pretty good (partly because one of Suse's developers was also on the XFree developer's board and had pretty good internal knowledge of X), but it still wouldnt work on certain hardware of mine.

Instead of using SAX or SAX2, try using XF86Config or Xorgconfig. Enter the settings the best you can. It may take quite a bit of trial and error. Unless you're using the most extremely new hardware out there, your hardware should be supported. Also, if you really need exact frequency settings, you should be able to get them at your monitor's vendor's website.

Good luck and let us know if you need any more help.

The problem is that all values seems to be correct. I searched Novell knowlege base and found the same values, that I have.
1024x768 works, but it look like 640x480 and the screen becomes green. Frankly I'm afraid to burn down my monitor.

According to google this trouble is only with SyncMaster 755 DFX.

Is there a documented problem with SyncMaster 755 DFX, for sure? If so, would you mind showing me the link?
