XF86Config-4 (this works just fine)
Um, ok, where do I find the log?
are you saying the XF86Config-4 you included works fine?
Yes, the XF86Config-4 I included works perfectly.
The log file is in /var/log/XFree86.0.log
Does Xconfigurator work for you after the install?
If it doesn't, does editing
and changing the line for your display from:
Dell; Dell 1280X Laptop Display Panel; 0; 31.5-90.0; 60.0; 1
Dell; Dell 1280X Laptop Display Panel; 0; 31.5-90.0; 59.0-85.0; 1
fixed in 4.9.15 and later.
