Default Re: G210m Blank Laptop Display

Regardless of this mess, I'm still looking to get a VAIO laptop. Though I appreciate the effort here, it really steams my weasel having to rely upon Windows to pull off this work around. After a little searching, has anyone tried the linux tool "read-edid" in place of the Windows only edid pulling tool touted here?

For Ubuntu Karmic users: sudo apt-get install read-edid

I'm doubtful this is another solution, but I would really really appreciate it if one of you attempted to pull your EDID with this and posted the result (if any). I tested this tool out on my Nvidia desktop and it produced a similar EDID as ones posted here as verified with a hex editor.

Here's to hoping getting Windows out of the loop here!
