Default Re: How to determine proper modeline?

Answer to my own question: use Windows ...

The ModeLine entered while working for Xorg's nv did not for NVidia's nvidia. A post on another nvnews forum (here ) identfied a working Modeline entry as reported by some Windows utility.

The working ModeLine entry is:

Code:
ModeLine     "1680x1050" 119.0 1680 1728 1760 1840 1050 1053 1059 1080
and for the record, the entire xorg.conf is:

Code:
Section "ServerLayout"
	Identifier     "default"
	Screen      0  "OfficeScreen" 0 0
	InputDevice    "Mice" "CorePointer"
	InputDevice    "Keyboard" "CoreKeyboard"
EndSection
