I have a Lattitude CPx J Laptop with an ATI Rage Mobility Video Card.
With XFree 3.3.6 I can easily set up two XF86Config files. Once for when the laptop uses the built-in LCD screen, and the other for a DELL P1110 Monitor.
But, I can't get the same for XFree 4.0.2.
I can create one for the LCD screen with no problems. But the monitor is very difficult. The rates for the monitor are Horiz:30-121 and Vert:48-160.
The problem seems to be that it detects the LCD panel and get's the information on it's display modes. These unfortunately don't work on the Monitor as the frequencies fall bellow that of the Monitor (27H and 35V or similar).
I've tried setting the modelines explicitly myself but it just removes them.
SAX2 with SuSE 7.0 seems to get going but again the refresh rates are for the LCD panel, not the Monitor. Trying xf86config produces similar results....
Does anyone out there know of a way in which I can get xfree 4.0.2 up and running???
