I've got a 17" Viewsonic 17PS and a ET6000 based Hercules card
(Dynamite/128 I believe). You probably didn't need to know that.
What's important is that they are both capable of doing.. say
1024x768x16bpp at 80+ Hz or so vertical refresh. The default
/etc/XF86Config file only has mode timings that support up to
76Hz. Yeah, I'm being picky, but I want to have the highest
refresh I can. For example, I'd never do this, but if I wanted
to bring it down to 1024x768x256 my hardware is capable of
90+ Hz (I think).. yet the /etc/XF86Config file will still only
support 76. This shouldn't have anything to do with the
server I'm using (which btw, is SVGA), because the mode timings
themselves are in the config file. I figure all I need to do is
add some lines to that section of the file, but I have no
idea what numbers to put in..
