Hello,
Does anyone know where I can see the list of display monitors yast
picks
up and detects in opensuse 11.2.
I want to have a look at the ones supported, because the existing
monitor
needs replacing.

Also have you got a script to output the result in the following
format:

<Monitor make> <monitor model detail>


Hi,

Yast / Sax use the file /usr/share/sax/api/data/cdb/Monitors to catch
information and on top of that DDC is used to query the monitor itself.

DDC is used with all modern monitors and I have not come across any
recent
screen that I could not just plug and use.
One 'issue' are color profiles, as there is no way (yet) to import color
definition files provided by a vendor. (work is happening here:
http://projects.gnome.org/gnome-color-manager/ )

Hope this helps you a little.

Dominique

Thanks Dominique
I tweaked the output a little.
# cat /usr/share/sax/api/data/cdb/Monitors | grep -v "#" | grep -v "DDC="
| grep -v "DPI=" | grep -v "Hsync=" | grep -v "Modeline=" | grep -v
"Resolution=" | grep -v "Vsync=" | grep -v "Profile=" | grep -v "LCD:" |
grep -v "VESA:" | grep -v "Option=DPMS"| grep -v "}" | sort -u | sed
's/{//g'
