Only that the above quote from Sven could be read as "will investigate _any_ connected monitor and return perfect configuration", which is not the case. I don't want xresprobe to do anything more, I see it probably cannot. I just wanted to avoid misinterpretation by people casually reading the thread, mainly on the d-boot list. > So, there's a potential *huge* net gain. And no net loss. Full ack in the context of X configuration. But, in the context of potential use of xresprobe for autodetection when booting the (graphical) installer (as Sven hinted at), non DCC compliant hardware also needs to be supported.
