What is 'all the correct ways'?

In my experience, Sax2 or Yast2 didn't get the exact monitor's information.

BTW< I'm using SUSE 10.0, though.
Sax doesn't work properly with ATI driver.
So, I edited xorg.conf with Emacs, and haven't got any problem.

Do you?

What is the difference between the non-correct xorg.conf and the correct
Did you checked?

Basil> Re the 68Hz versus 60Hz refresh rate.

So, I wrote 'generally speaking'.
That is, as you might know, there doesn't exist the refresh rate for LCD.
But, LCD maker optimizes the LCD display's control circuit seeing LCD
display as a CRT display with 60Hz refresh rate.

As you point out, the spec is shown as follows;

*1024x768@68 Maximum Resolution

At this point, I wondering....

That is, for LCD display, we do must avoid the too high refresh rate.
Unless, it give damages to LCD display.
