      Dear everyone,

      in a few days, I will need to use my I8k (RH 7.3, XFree86-4.2.0) with
      at projector that supports a maximum resolution of 1024x768. I've
      aready tried quite a lot to switch my system down to this resolution
      but have failed til now.

      The relevant sections of my XF86Config-4 look like this:

      Section "Monitor"
      Identifier "Dell 1600x TFT Display"
      VendorName "Dell"
      ModelName "Inspiron 8000 1600x TFT Display"
      HorizSync 31.5-90.0
      VertRefresh 59.0-85.0
      EndSection

      Section "Device"
      Identifier "ATI Rage 128 Mobility"
      VendorName "ATI"
      BoardName "Rage Mobility M3 AGP 2x"
      Driver "r128"
      # Option "AGPMode" "4" #See www.whacked.net/ldl/faq
      # Option "Display" "Mirror" #See ww
      w.whacked.net/ldl/faq
      EndSection

      Section "Screen"
      Identifier "Default"
      Device "ATI Rage 128 Mobility"
      Monitor "Dell 1600x TFT Display"
      DefaultDepth 24
      Subsection "Display"
      Depth 24
      Modes "1600x1200" "1280x1024" "1280x960" "1152x864"
      "1024x768"
      "800x600" "640x480"
      EndSubSection
      EndSection

      If I press <Ctl><Fn><Alt><+/->, I can change between the generic
      1600x1200 and a little lower resolution, which is unfortunately still
      exceeding the projector's capabilites. Why is there no way to run the
      other moedes specified above?

      I would appreciate any input, especially any working XF86Configs ;-)

      TIA, Guenter

      Try using a different bit depth - try 16 bit or 32 bit. I m attaching my XF86Config-4. I can do 1600x1200, 1280x1024, 1024x768, 800x600 and 640x480 - and it

        Try using a different bit depth - try 16 bit or 32 bit.
        I'm attaching my XF86Config-4. I can do 1600x1200, 1280x1024, 1024x768,
        800x600 and 640x480 - and it looks like we have the same distribution, X
        server, LCD display and video card.

        One thing to note is that I'm using the GATOS ati drivers - not the ones that
        come with X.

        cheers,
        steve

          Hi Stephen, ... thanks for the hint and the XF86Config ... actually, it was not the colour depth but something else, that I didn t figure out yet. Cheers,
