You should have no need of gtf or mode creation with 620 graphics. Mode creation
via xrandr is an anachronism. X knows very well how to auto generate modes when
provided with needed specs. If EDID, the usual source for the data, is broken,
then provide the specs via:


containing the horizontal sync and vertical refresh rates for your display, e.g.:

	Section "Monitor"
	    Identifier	"Default Monitor"
		HorizSync	28-85
		VertRefresh	50-100

Usually you can get these two specs if not elsewhere using:

	hwinfo --monitor

As to why you're having the problem, let us see the resulting URL from:

	pastebinit /var/log/Xorg.0.log

as a start.
Evolution as taught in public schools is, like religion,
	based on faith, not based on science.
