Re: X setup roadblock
I had the same problem with my Dell Latitude LX ... I had to delete all my mode
lines till I found the one that worked :-(
Can you send more information on the "override_valid_modes" option ?
Sailboat racing is not a matter of life and death .... It is far more important
than that !!!

On my toshiba Libretto (800x480) I had to add a option to the XServer:
override_valid_modes, and then create a modeline of 800x480, after that it
worked like a charm... If you have no luck, I can post my Config file..
