Re: 8174 on Toshiba Satellite with ACPI "legacy free"
Okay, I altered modprobe.conf with softedids=1 and getfromROM=1
also did what you asked in xorg.conf and commented anything that might interfere.
Looks like 8174 DOES read edid from these toshibas, go figure.
But, like always in the past, detects only 1372 horiz resolution, not 1400, so I get that black space at right.
And continues to detect max dot clock of 108Mhz, and i cannot get any program or website to create 1400x1050x60Hz with 108Mhz!
Could it be the Toshiba bios?
Could it be Nvidia drivers?
I must also mention that console switching is still only possible with vga=normal in lilo.conf
