XF86Config bombed instantly, even with startx.
This afternoon after hours of testing one-change-at-a-time
I found that the DefaultDepth of 8 is at least one thing that
bombs. 24 works, but the max size with "X -pconfigure"s
xorg.conf only 1152x863(?). A DefaultDepth of 16 gives me
1880x1024, which is what works best for here.
I'm still having troubl getting the Horz and Vert sync numbers
right. This is probably why the GUI apps "quiver" whenever I
try anything. My CRT is trying to tell me something when going
blank by printing error message about "INVALID SYNC" and so
on. _So_ is there any tool that will auto-configure the
horizontal/vertical ranges? I didn't see xvidtune in the
X11R6 bin directory, but don't think it had this capability.
(FWIW, my tube is a Hitachi SuperScan Eltire751.)
