Re: Adjust imac G3 monitor?



Thanks for your answer, Gunther.  I'm still new,  could you (or anyone for that matter) please make that a bit more user friendly?  I understand that I'll have to "hold some packages", but I don't know how to do that.  I've tried editing the /etc/apt/sources.list before and it failed probably because I didn't hold those packages.  I run
$ cat /etc/apt/preferences
and it says "no file found".  How do I hold packages?  Where can I find this in the documentation?  Thanks for your patience.  This computer is my Grandma's old computer that I rescued from an early grave with Debian, and I'm hoping to keep it as up-to-date as possible as long as possible. 
I'm still hoping to find a way to adjust the monitor.  It's really crooked and doesn't use all the screen area.  Any Ideas, anyone?

I am running sid in a G3 iMac. I installed lenny,
edited /etc/apt/sources.list and upgraded to sid. In order to make X
work, I've hold some packages:

$ cat /etc/apt/preferences
Package: *
Pin: release a=testing
Pin-Priority: 501

Package: *
Pin: release a=unstable
Pin-Priority: 701

Package: *
Pin: release a=stable
Pin-Priority: 101

Package: xserver-xorg-video-r128
Pin: release v=6.8.0-1
Pin-Priority: 1001

Package: xserver-xorg-input-all
Pin: release v=1:7.3+20
Pin-Priority: 1001

Package: xserver-xorg-video-all
Pin: release v=1:7.3+20
Pin-Priority: 1001

the hardware is:
$ cat /proc/cpuinfo

and

$ lspci | grep isplay

and my /etc/X11/xorg.conf is (some xvidtune could be necessary):
