Right, but I could swear that the CRT showed 1600x1050 under XFree86, though the Sarge-Log seems to say something different. Anyway I can live with 1400x1050 or maybe 1600x1050 (virtually). > > You decide what to do (wether to close the bug, leave it open or forward > > this to upstream). > > If you agree that this is purely a configuration issue and no bug in the > xserver-xorg package, please close the bug by following up to > email@example.com . I don' really aggree that this is a configuration issue, as the behaviour of Xorg is certainly different from that of XFree86, but as I'm not sure wether XFree86 did support 1600x1050 on that monitor and I can live with the current solution I'm closing this bug. Thanks for your time and support on this. Andreas -- Cold hands, no gloves.
