This is excactly the thing i don't want. As i suggested, I'd like to invent some
system, that is run once, and aids you in configuring your system. After thats done,
your system is well configured (or at least, it should be), and your done, and you
don't get those stupid messages anymore.
Maybe, one should think about a concept for enabling autodetection for specialized
parts of hardware, eg if you use different monitors, that automatically different
refreshrates are selected.
