I presume you mean that you have lines of the form:
# 800x600 @ 100 Hz, 64.02 kHz hsync
Modeline "800x600" 69.65 800 864 928 1088 600 604 610 640 -HSync -VSync
in the "Monitors" section of the XF86Config. You also need to have the
modes you wish to use specified in the "Screen" section much like:
# Use Device "Generic VGA" for Standard VGA 320x200x256
#Device "Generic VGA"
Device "My Video Card"
Modes "1024x768" "800x600"
******* ^^^^^ ^^^^^^^^^^ ^^^^^^^^^
ViewPort 0 0
BTW, does anyone know why my "OffTime 10" line doesn't seem to work? The
monitor will go to blank screen while at the (KDM or console) login screen but,
once logged in, it'll just keep showing the screensaver forever. I'm running
RH70 with sawfish on Gnome with "use Power Management" selected and "shutdown
monitor after 5 minutes". Video card is a "Trident 3D Image 975 4Mb AGP".
Not exactly mainstream but seems to work well in general. It has a driver
of its own for xfree-4 while it uses the XF86_SVGA driver in xfree-3 which
