Re: Monitor is not detected at all, and ConnectedMonitor / UseDisplayDevice do not help.
Yes, the EDID is garbled in the latest bug report. That plus the fact that the CRT isn't even detected when plugged into the DVI connector leads me to wonder whether the VGA cable or the CRT itself is faulty.
Was anything displayed on the CRT after starting X in the last experiment?
Does the behavior change with 1.0-9631 or 1.0-9742?
