Hi all

Got the following in xorg.conf

Section Monitor:
Modeline "1280x1024"  135.00  1280 1296 1440 1688  1024 1025 1028 1066
+hsync +vsync

Section Screen:
Modes	"1280x1024" "1024x768"

Login screen is  flickering at max  resolution of my radeon  7500 @60hz

Setup  resolution from  within  gnome and  now it changes resolution
correctly after  login. I want the default resolution  at login
screen  also.

This  is for gnome 2.16  compiled  from source.

Any  help deeply  appreciated.

Please cc  me  as I am  not subscribed.
