xfree4.0.1+i810e Stuck at 1600x1200

My xfree86 4.0.1 on i810e insists on 1600x1200 even tho XF86Config says

Am I missing something? Is there a command-line switch that can
override?  1600x1200 would be OK except for some tiny enlightenment menu
fonts which don't seem to be configurable.

The answer (to my dumb question) is:

Xfree86 4.0.1 uses XF86Config-4, not XF86Config, silly.

XFree86 actually has a long list of files to search for when trying to load a
configuration file.

For a normal user, it searches


For root, it will also look in the current directory for <cmdline> or

Anyway, what this means is that if you have an XF86Config-4 file, that will get
used in preference to XF86Config. This was done so that you could run XFree86
3.3.6 (using XF86Config) alongside 4.0.x (using XF86Config-4).

1. ATI 3D Rage Pro don't work on XFree4.0.1

I've download XFree86 4.0.1 instead of 4.0 because is say that my ATI

and accelerated.
No problem with install, the probing of the 3D Rage Pro is OK, but when
i try to run XFree86, the following error
is reported: (EE) ATI(0): Unsupported XCLK source:  7
I've tried some solutions bus none of it work:
- use ati driver without acceleration (Chiset = "ativga")
- removing linear aperture
- specifing clocks values
I've also in my system an Voodoo2 board: can this card be the source of
the problem?

Can anyoune suggest me a solutions?
