XFree86 on Debian

Recommended Posts

I am trying to find out the exact value for the Vertical Refresh

so i can change it ( if needed ) to another value .

In /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 there is just the interval in which

my monitor is able to run , but no exact value for the current]

screen.

 

The last Linux i used ( Slackware 10 ) provided an entry in the

Control Center for this value.

 

How can I find that value out ?

How can i change it ?

Let's start with providing a little more information. What version of Debian are you running? Woody, Sarge, Sid?

 

In terms of horizonal and vertical rates, it depends on your monitor. You don't need exact rates, just ranges. If X did not set up the monitor correctly, then you can alter the rates in XF86Config-4 , based on what your monitor specs. say are the ranges and what is recommended.

 

What monitor is it?

 

Do you currently have a gui/desktop up and running?

Get your monitor specs and I'll help you with the rest.

 

example form my xfree86-4 config file

 

Quote:
Section "Monitor"

Identifier "Sony E200"

HorizSync 28-50

VertRefresh 43-75

Option "DPMS"

EndSection

I edited /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 myself ....with the right intervals

30-69 Horizontal

50-85 Vertical

 

The monitor is AOC GLR 15+ .....but i guess the indentifier is just "aoc"

 

I have Woody and I am using Kde

The problem is that i think it's doing 75Hz at 1024x768

and i want it to do 85Hz. This is perfectly possible as both Windows and Slackware work fine with this configuration.
