never since the migration from XFree86 to Xorg found it necessary to

HorizSync and VertRefresh to autogenerate what it needs in cases where
EDID is insufficient, broken or missing entirelly.

Xorg is not that smart. In another post, I asked for help to configure my laptop to use an external Displayport-monitor. That's because Xorg is not smart enough to configure it right. In KDE's program to configure the monitors, the two monitors are seen, but I can't get it to really use the external monitor. And resolution configurations I set for the external monitor are applied to the laptop's screen.

So Xorg of OS 12.2 may be smart, but not smart enough to let me set up my hardware. Old Ubuntu 10.04 has no problem with it though.
I really don't like Ubuntu, but I can't use OpenSuse because of my display-problems.

My frustrated 2 cents,

Koenraad Lelong.

P.S. just saw I finally had a reply, after about two weeks ! I'm going to try when I get my Opensuse to boot again. Now it fails, because of my messing with the display-settings.
