Re: low resolution with NeoMagic drivers?

And suddenly Tuukka Toivonen had this magical idea:

You can try putting this in your Device Section in /etc/XF86Config:

Option "override_validate_mode"

I used it to force X to use my home-made 800x570 Modeline. I don't have
enough VRAM for 16-bit 800x600 so I removes 30 scanlines. :-) It works

Keep in mind that the docs warn you against using this, it can damage LCD
screens, they say. I don't know how dangerous it really is.
