Description mchampig 2000-07-16 21:27:36 UTC
Here are some of my monitors which are missing from Xconfigurator. I assume you are
keeping a database of these for use in autoprobing? Or maybe kudzu uses this? 

Anyway, here is the info. If you need more let me know. I have detailed specs from
the manuals.

Comment 1 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-07-18 20:20:24 UTC
I'll add them, but to be most useful we would also need the identifier returned
by a DDC probe.

Comment 2 Glen Foster 2000-07-18 20:38:52 UTC
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Winston Beta-5

Comment 3 mchampig 2000-07-18 21:23:08 UTC
How can I get the DDC probe values from the monitors? Is there something I can
pass to X from
the command line to grab this info or do I have to hack some code together to
grab this?

Let me know so I can send you the detailed info you need.

Comment 4 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-07-18 21:39:38 UTC
Run a recent version of kudzu - I think the one i beta3 might be sufficient,
otherwise wait for beta4. Information should then end up in
/etc/sysconfig/hwconf, like this: 

class: MONITOR
bus: DDC
detached: 0
driver: unknown
desc: "ViewSonic G77"
id: VSC4a44
horizSyncMin: 30
horizSyncMax: 70
vertRefreshMin: 50
vertRefreshMax: 180
mode: 640x480
mode: 800x600
mode: 1024x768
mode: 1152x864
mode: 1280x960
mode: 1280x1024

It's the "id" tag I want.

Comment 5 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-07-18 22:21:42 UTC
Added to CVS - please append the other info if you get it.

Comment 6 mchampig 2000-07-19 15:17:43 UTC
Deferred until beta4...the kudzu on beta3 doesn't probe for monitors.
Will get back to you on this when we get to beta4.
