    Yes, it reads the hsync range and vrefresh ranges from EDID,... just like all Linux graphics configurations should have many years ago.

    The Linux X-server used to read values from the EDID,... but then they tossed away the hsync range and vrefresh ranges and used a very low and very narrow (and thus worse than useless) default.

    It is good to see that Ubuntu has changed that practice.

      I don't think it's an Ubuntu practice... it's common to most recent X.org implementations as far as I know?

        Fedora 10 doesn't ship with an xorg.conf at all (at least the spin/config that I installed).

            The fact that things are (perhaps) done right now, for one or two distros, does not mean that all is, or has been, well.

              Funny that not one other person has contributed a single EDID Modeline to the collection.

              Why do you think that is?

                  Yes. It's because you're insane.

                    I don't believe that you actually answered the question.

                      Maybe people aren't contributing because they try to run the given command and see the same thing I am seeing:

                      jt@Lutefisk:~$ sudo startx -- -logverbose 6

                      Fatal server error:
                      Server is already active for display 0
                      If this server is no longer running, remove /tmp/.X0-lock
                      and start again.

                        You are meant to run startx from the console,.... that is without the X-server already running.

                          Actually, my response "it's because you're insane" was exactly the correct answer. As pointed out in this forum and other places, you suffer from paranoid delusions. This has manifested itself in a number of ways, one of the most persistent being that bugs or other technical problems are the result of some mysterious cabal of "linux saboteurs".

                          Unfortunately, another hallmark of paranoid delusions is that anyone who tries to point out that these false thoughts are actually delusions becomes "part of the conspiracy".

                          Sadly, it's typical that even previously trusted friends, family members, clergy, doctors, etc. are powerless to help as they become "co-conspirators" in the deteriorating mind of the patient.

                          Patients who don't get help from friends or family eventually become wards of the state, incarcerated in prisons or mental institutions, or wind up living on the streets.

                          None of those are very good outcomes, so I hope you get some treatment while you still can.

                            I think this might be what you're looking for.

                              Looks like Jade has already been there.
