Question Slackware 13.0 64 bit screen resolution on RS485M-M

CVT 1280 1024 60 or
GTF 1280 1024 60 give a modeline.

xrandr --newmode <newmode> modeline
xrandr --addmode VGA-0 <modename>
xrandr --output VGA-0 --mode <modename>

result: error message -- screen too big.

xrandr --fb 1280 1024

result: error message -- screen too big.

There is a mode after --addmode 1280x1024_60.00 but it cannot be selected

Tried: cp xorg.conf-vesa xorg.conf

restarting X server with ctrl+alt+backspace gives modes with max 800x600
even though I had introduced "1280x1024" in relevant section.

How does xorg setup the X server???????

How do I change the driver to flgrx for ATI X1100 on board graphics?????

Why is everything so well hidden???? Worse than M$.

All I want is a simple 1280x1024@60Hz and not 1024x768@60Hz.

I am not sure this helps as I am still with Slack12.2.


# xorgsetup
