This is not a fatal problem.  xdebconfigurator will use all the hw

kudzu-vesa package, but is missing in sid/sarge (bug #284884).  It
will use the info from read-edid instead.  Ubuntu made a new package
xresprobe including ddcprobe.  I hope someone will make it available
in Debian soon.  But as I said, the lack of ddcprobe is not a fatal
