The same here.
  It's 945G here, and EDID doesn't work. Monitor section of xorg.conf is
totally ignored. Where are the default monitor data ? I'm going to patch
them to allow my monitor to work at 1600x1200 as obviously.
  BTW there are many threads in this list complaining just about this
problem, and there were never any attempts (AFAIK) to find a real cause
and solution. I think EDID doesn't work here even with the old driver,
this is the reason for which I have the monitor data carefully filled in
xorg.conf. Why they are ignored by the new driver ?
                                           With regards, Pavel Troller
