G'day Keith, hi all!

I've already tried modelines for the resolutions and refresh rates I'd like to force, to no effect however. I've used `gtf` up until now to generate them, hope this is still OK?
The xorg.conf I used, and the corresponding logfile are to be found here:

Btw, I just noticed the manpage of my drivers says the Option we're talking about when disabling EDID is called "DDC", not "NoDDC". Just wanted to point that out. :)

> Then select this mode with 'option "Preferred Mode" "1680x1050_60.00"

I'll try that as soon as I'm able to restart X ;)

Thanks for your input, it's highly appreciated!
