Re: xorg video modes question

Hi Hartwig, Mark,

The xorg.conf file fixed the problem. I commented out the sections for the keyboard and mouse since the Sun keyboard and mouse worked ok. I changed the other sections to suit the Sun LCD.

Thanks for the help!

Best regards,

I am running Debian 6.0 on a Sun Ultra 5 with a Sun 7205a LCD.  The

1280x1024 but I have been unable to determine how to do this.  There is
no longer an xorg command to run with -configure to give an xorg.conf
file to edit and I have not been able to generate one that X will
accept.  I know the major timing numbers for the LCD but do not know
what to use for "Video Card".  What should I do to change the video mode?

/etc/X11/xorg.conf, taken from my Ultra 5, running Debian 6.0.6, onboard

Color depth is 16 bit, 24 bit does not work with 1280x1024 pixels (Xorg.0.log:
insufficient memory).
