Bug#287798: xserver-xfree86: debconf doesn't always choose optimal monitor characteristics automatically

About 2 years ago, you reported a bug to the Debian BTS regarding the X
server not choosing optimal monitor automatically. IT was supposed to
get better with Xorg 6.8.2. Did you reproduce this problem recently? If
not, I will close this bug in the next weeks.


hello Brice!

I since switched to Debian/sid-Kanotix which has tweaked scripts to configure, among others, the x-server. (knxcc and change-res) and installing binary drivers for NV and ATi. That got me to 100Hz refresh. Luckily for me the monitor finally died and I got a Samsung 204B (1600x1200 flat screen ) where refresh rates are not as important due to the missing phosphor persistence.

I still thinks the Debian configuration refuses to use anything over 75Hz refresh, but as CRT's are going the way of the Dodo bird this may perhaps not be a problem.

I think you can close it.
