Re: X setup roadblock

G'Day !

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 ?

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..

Good luck..
