OK, don't hate me for this, but I have a 20" Apple display that I

plugged in. I have even booted to the console, and it works fine,
I am wondering if it would be possible to use XFree86 with this
display. I have 4.3.99-pre10 working on the unit, but as there are
no XF86Config entries for the display, I am doubtful that it will
work. Has anyone done this, and if so, could you possibly share that
I am using an Apple Cinema Display on my PC and have it all set
up with XFree86/Linux. You will at least need to tweak some
Modeline settings in the XF86Config file; have a look at
(the very bottom).
Thanks for the reply. Do you have a link to that Apple hardware spec?
I have a 20" display, but the configuration info you have is for a
23". Perhaps I can find the 20" spec using the location of your link.
I will search on Apple's site as well.
