Xorg GUI refuses to set up proper screen resolution

Can't set proper resolution for my Samsung SyncMaster? 913N LCD with ATI X600 PCI-e graphics card.

After selecting resolution 1280x1024 in XOrg gui I was greeted with message:
"The previous attempt failed, please check your setting and try later!"

All I see in /etc/X11/xorg.conf that everything is detected correctly- Driver "ati", Monitor setting are correct- refresh rate and horizontal syncronization are fine- but I can't see refresh rate in Xorg GUI...

Modes "1024x768"- looks lke Xorg GUI didn't change any resolution here.

When you look at the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file, you are looking at the working one, currently running the Xorg GUI tool, not the one which you tried to setup via the XGUI tool.

Please check the /PCBSD/tmp/xsetup.log.old file when you get brought back to the failure screen. From there you can see any error messages that "startx" may have generated when trying to test your new resolution.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

The latest snapshot after 9-12-07 should fix this now, uses the autodetected refresh rates from X -configure
