XFree86 Resolution Problems...


The problem is, in my /etc/X11/XF86Config file, i have this section:

SubSection "Display"
Depth 16
Modes "1280x1024" "1280x960" "1152x864" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480" "1600x1200"
EndSubSection

now the resolution that i want to use is 1280x1024, so i place it first, correct? well, if i have "1600x1200" anywhere in it, then it'll use that resolution, no matter where in order the "1600x1200" part is...ARGH! its bloody annoying..heh

any suggestions as to why this may be doing this?
