Blurry screen with X 4.2.0



Hi all--

I just set my laptop up with sid and unofficial X 4.2.0 debs. The
computer is a HP Omnibook 6100 with a 15-inch screen. I tried the VESA
driver first, and it acted as if it was on a 14-inch screen. Perfectly
visible and crisp display, just an annoying black border of dark
pixels.

So I upgraded to X4.2, using the ATI driver (the card is a ATI
Technologies Inc Radeon Mobility M6 LY). The border problem is gone
(ie it uses the whole of the screen), but the display is very
blurry. I tried setting up sub-pixel sampling (in XftConfig), but
couldn't notice any difference.

It feels like the sort of problem that can be solved with a tweak to a
single config file.

Does anyone know what that tweak is? :-)
