Talking SOLUTION: xorg.conf for Dell Latitude D800 WUXGA

Hi,

I have a Dell Latitude D800 laptop with a WUXGA 1920 x 1200 LCD display. I had trouble getting Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 (RHEL 4) to work properly, until I got a modified xorg.conf file from RedHat Support. The full file is at http://pastebin.com/890183 , the relevant sections (different from default) are:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Option "dpms"
EndSection

Section "Device"

EndSection

EndSubSection
EndSection

Section "DRI"

EndSection
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
