G770i: Display problem solved, config files uploaded.

Now I'm writing this blog using my 6.2-R. :D. Also, the problem with display has been solved. Seems like I can't use 24 bit color & do 1024x768 resolution here. Found out the correct refresh rate of this monitor (Samsung SyncMaster 450b). So in /etc/X11/xorg.conf, I put:

Section "Monitor"
    HorizSync 30.0 - 55.0
    VertRefresh 50.0 - 120.0
    Modeline "800x600" 56.30 800 832 896 1024 600 601 604 623 +hsync +vsync
    Option "DPMS"

How to get the corrent modeline? Here's a good howto regarding configuring your monitor fer Xorg. Using xvidtune help alot too. Remember to su before using xvidtune. As mine can only use 800x600 resolution, the settings here might not be suitable fer you guys. Maybe you can use 1024x768 or even higher.

I've uploaded the G770IKERNEL (my kernel configuration file), rc.conf and xorg.conf. You can download it from the left panel of this blog. Ah. Y! Messenger is installed ;). Had to install linux-ymessenger instead of ymessenger because the latter have some sort of problem, can't get the file anywhere. Later.
