Sorry to re-open this old topic, but I finally found some time to test
things a little more.<br>
I notice that I can get my X working if I erase my xorg.conf, and let X
figure it out for itself.<br>
However, the image does not fully fit on the screen (I only see the top
part of my desktop).<br>
I tried X --configure as well, but if I use the xorg.conf that is
created by that command, I do not get an image on my screen. However,
since X can run (and give me an image) if there is no config file
available, I am sure that it must be possible to get it working
Is there a way to make X write its configuration, once it is running?<br>
Kind regards, <br>

<pre wrap="">Hi all,
I know this probably is a stupid question to most of you, but I am
trying to connect an LVDS panel to my AMD Geode LX board, and up to now,
I do not get an image on the panel. Can anyone provide me with a simple
xorg.conf file that does this?
You either need to set up your panel in the BIOS (which the X driver will
pick up automatically), or you can specify the
"Option" "PanelGeometry" "<width>x<height>"
in your xorg.conf. If you don't have "standard" panel, then you will need
to probably also specify the timings for your panel as a ModeLine.
Try the BIOS route first, it is easier to configure.
PS for posterity on Google: If you are trying the newer RandR branch,
(v 2.12.0 and higher), then replace "PanelGeometry" with:
"PanelMode" "hactive hsyncstart hsyncend htotal vactive vstart vsend vototal"
You won't need to specify a seperate modeline in this case.
