[opensuse] Manual Xorg configuration help on 12.2
I am trying to use an LG TV as my monitor in an HTC env. The PC used is an Intel based PC with DVI, HDMI, and some other video port I'm not familiar with. In any case, this particular TV is NOT providing its EDID information to the PC. At least that is what the kernel people are telling me. I have obtained the EDID information from the service manual and have a binary blob that contains it. Using the parse-edid pgm in the read-edid package (Not SuSE provided) I have the info.

markh@harley:/local/dnld/import/inst/read-edid-2.0.0> ./parse-edid /lib/firmware/edid/lg42lb9df_dvi.bin
./parse-edid: parse-edid version 2.0.0
./parse-edid: EDID checksum passed.

As you can see it provides what looks like xorg.conf or XF86Config file entries from this binary edid file. Can some one point me as to how to provide this information to Xorg via the /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d directory so I can force X to use it?

It looks like I need to modify the 50-monitor.conf, 50-screen.conf, and maybe 50-device.conf files but I don't know the proper syntax for adding this info to these empty files.

Is X still manually configurable using these files?

I know about the kernels drm_kms_helper module but it is borked with this particular hardware.

Thanks in advance
