Description of problem:
The XFree probe/Configurator doesn't recognise my combination of a
Bridge Monitor BM17F and a GeForce MX 200. I don't know much about
XFree, but in Red Hat 9 and in Knoppix 3.2, 3.3, I have to manually
fill in the drivers in the config-file, otherwise the system crashes
on boot. It must be something with the refresh-rate or so. For my
monitor it should be Horizontal 30-87 and vertical 50-160. This crash
occurs already with the Firstboot service.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RH9 on a system with the monitor and card
2. See it crashing
Actual Results: Crash
Expected Results: An usable screen
The monitor should autodetect with DDC, however I can add it to our
database for manual configuration if it's missing.
I just did a quick google search and found the necessary settings:
