Default Re: 320.17 can't detect video modes on Lenovo laptop

Like Andy said, RandR 1.2 gives applications explicit control over the configuration of multiple display devices, bypassing the driver's MetaMode list. It is not possible to represent an entire MetaMode in RandR 1.2 because modes there exist on a per-output basis. If you want functionality that MetaModes provide to RandR 1.1 applications (such as scaling) in an RandR 1.2 application, that app will have to be able to request it explicitly. If functionality you need is missing, you will have to ask the application developer to add it.
