Default Re: Can only get 640x480 on my GeForce 6100...

Thanks, netllama!

That lead me in the right direction. I first found a modeline. After -logverbose 6 told me that the HorizSync was illegal, I googled for one of those and found it. Seeing that working, I then discovered that the mouse cursor was missing and found a solution to that, too.

I ended up with these diffs:

Why EDID detection doesn't work, how the modeline was derived at or what the "correct" HorizSync line should be I interpret "as magic".

Now it works. I've attached my working xorg.conf file as a .zip in case others need it.

Thanks!
