xrandr options in xorg.conf
Hi. I'm using a netbook with an intel GPU and a recent intel driver. In my .xinitrc, I have this command: xrandr --output LVDS1 --set "scaling mode" "Full aspect"

But that causes a brief black flicker and stalls the login a little bit. I'd like to specify this in my xorg.conf or find some way for this option to be set as Xorg starts. I don't know what the xorg.conf equivalent option is, or even if one exists.

Can someone help me with this?

modify that

man xrandr

Or you can read the driver specific manual

man i810 (?)

write a xorg.conf with driver options

I already checked man intel. It only specifies how to change scaling mode through xrandr.

man xrandr doesn't give me anything useful concerning xorg.conf.

It should be controlled by a script

see man xorg.conf for access to the script

I didn't see anything about a script in xorg.conf's man page, nor by googling for it.

oh ... sorry misread it.

change the options to xrandr in xinitrc

or use options in the driver part in xorg.conf

man intel has related options for LVDS

post the X log files in /var/log too
