Vmode is a small C program I wrote to help X386 and XFree86 users create
mode definitions for their video displays. The program is quite simple,
but I have found it to be very useful and wanted to share it with the rest
of the Linux community. It's based entirely on "The Hitchhiker's Guide to
X386/XFree86 Video Timing (or, Tweaking your Monitor for Fun and Profit)"
by Eric Raymond, et. al. I plan to contact Pat, the Slackware guy to see
if he would like to include it in a later Slackware distribution as part
of the XF86Config set-up scripts, but I wanted to get some feedback from
the people on the net first.
The files are on sunsite.unc.edu in /pub/Linux/Incoming (for now):
All of the documentation is contained in the .c file. Please feel free to
contact me if you have any questions.
I can not accept responsibility for any damages resulting from the
use of the data generated by vmode. However, if you find any bugs
or have recommendations on how the program could be improved, I'd
love to hear them.
