Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2001-07-23 16:39:34 EDT
I need your monitor's EDID.  Can you attach an uncompressed XFree86
logfile via the link below.  ASAP, please so I can close this.

Comment 2 Linus Walleij 2001-07-23 19:06:35 EDT
For some reason my redhat installation does not output a log to
/var/log/XFree86.0.log as it should. Any hints?
Comment 3 Mike A. Harris 2001-07-23 19:29:59 EDT
That doesn't sound right... Have you modified your system or XFree86
installation in any major way?  If you start X via "startx" or gdm/kdm/xdm
it should create the log unless you've disabled it or changed the verbosity
of the server.

Try starting X with "startx &> X.log", and attach the resulting log.

Log from read-edid 1.4.1
Comment 6 Linus Walleij 2001-07-24 13:34:12 EDT
OK I added a log from X and the output from the program read-edid. Aren't you
sopposed to be running XFree86 4.x in order to get EDID-values? This is really
just a RH7.1 installation off the shelf... I can install XFree64 4.x if needed.
Comment 7 Linus Walleij 2001-07-24 15:37:54 EDT
After some reading and digging around, I have come to the conclusion that:

a) the stuff in monitor.log is complete crap and does not indicate the EDID in
any way.
b) my monitor is most likely not PnP-aware.
Comment 8 Mike A. Harris 2001-07-24 18:25:39 EDT
You're right, you need to be using 4.x.  I've nonetheless added
your monitor to the list, it just needs to be picked manually now.
If you can get full info for the monitor later, let me know and I will
add the ID so it can be autodetected.

BTW, where did you get read-edid?
