Xorg, given valid EDID or display specs via config file, is smart enough
99.9999% of the time to auto-generate acceptable modelines.

well... this mean only we have to provide correct spec file, what is not
simpler :-(

In this context, "correct" has wide latitude. Only two spec lines are needed in xorg.conf:

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Default Monitor"
HorizSync 28-91
VertRefresh 55-76

For most LCDs for which the display's actual specs are not discoverable, the numbers above will be close enough for Xorg to calculate suitably every bit as well as cvt, gtf or any of those web page calculators.

words are persuasive." Proverbs 16:21 (New Living Translation)
