  1. Samsung 245B & Sax2 (Suse-10.2)


    I just upgraded to a Samsung 245B LCD which is good
    for 1920x1200@60Hz. The Sax2 generic LCD list does
    not provide such an entry and the monitor is not in
    the named models list. As it is, sax2 will not give
    me the above native/max resolution.

    I used GTF to generate modelines and this works but
    only up to 48Hz. I don't see how it could be harmful. (?)

    According to a very friendly (!!!) but unofficial
    phonecall (from a source officially providing no
    product support under linux) this should not be a
    problem. But I'd feel a lot better if someone could
    clarify/confirm/explain.

    In the monitor settings in openSUSE 10.3 there is a 'Utility Disk' button
    and this will read monitor settings from the CD supplied with your
    monitor. Worked for my Syncmaster 204BW. Perhaps there is a similar
    feature in 10.2?

    Thank you! I got 10.3 up and it all worked ok as
    you said. 10.2's sax2 has the feature also but it
    couldn't read the same CD. Anyway, on with 10.3 now :-)
