Let me know what kind of information might be useful in getting this monitor detected, and how I can get that information.

This is a hwdata bug, not xorg-x11. Please supply the .inf file for your monitor.
Comment 2 Zack Cerza 2005-11-01 18:13:49 EST
So, where do I get the .inf file for my monitor?
Comment 3 Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams 2005-11-01 18:33:10 EST
The manufacturer would supply it.
Comment 4 Zack Cerza 2005-11-03 17:13:51 EST
Well, it's a Sun monitor. There's no model number, but the FCC ID is
AK8GDM500PS. As it's not even listed on their site (it was made in 1999), I'm
not sure how to get the .inf file.

Leaving as NEEDINFO, because... it still does. :)
Comment 5 Zack Cerza 2005-11-03 17:15:01 EST
Okay, reversing Bugzilla magic and putting it back in NEEDINFO.

I've done some quick research.

This monitor seems to be a rebranded Sony CPD-520GS.


This is the information about it. It's officially not capable of 1920x1440
though but only 1600x1200.

And for that monitor there is already an entry in the Monitor database:

Sony; Sony CPD-520GS/520GST/21GS2; sny02b0; 30.0-96.0; 48.0-160.0; 1

Read ya, Phil
