Re: XFree86 126.96.36.199 problems on Tangerine iMac DV
I tried Modes "current" and it still didn't work.
Fortunately I found Ryan Gordon's XF86Config-4 file,
which had mode lines he had found to work with the
iMac. Once I had manually set the mode lines,
everything worked beautifully. I didn't even know
you still could set the mode lines manually in
XF86 4, but I guess I was wrong.
