Thank you. I think I fell on something a bit complex with the i810
driver, and I do not know it this is my fault or the fault of the
driver. The screen I try to use is a 19" DELL 1905FP that can do
1280x1024@60. This does not seem to be a standard size (well, a minimal
xorg.conf yields me only 1024x768, which is pretty bad for a flat
panel). Trying to debug the thing, I found that when using custom
modelines I get the following message
(1280x1024_60.00,DELL1905FP) mode clock 100000MHz exceeds DDC maximum 140MHz
The reason why I get this message is that some structure is not
internally done: the pScrn->modes pointer has a component HDisplay and
VDisplay which is 0 (so HDisplay and VDisplay is skipped). This all
happens in i830_driver.c which is in 000_stolen_from_HEAD_i810.
I am willing to help, have hardware to test, but am relatively new to X
internals (not that new, but all the same).
Anybody has hints or places I could look into ?
