I installed gutsy last night with no big problems except that after the
initial boot the logon screen came up as a totally black screen.
No Problem I had burned a install disk. Unfortunately it had exactly the same
problem & even the safe graphics mode failed to work. :-(
So I booted into the CL version and played around a bit with xorg.conf,
finally running Xorg -configure to give me a xorg.conf file that worked.
Well sort of worked. It no longer was able to give me a 1280x1024 resolution
which I had working in Fiesty (not to mention the dreaded XP). Nonetheless
Gutsy seems to be working just with really big print etc. :-(
Monitor: Princeton VL173 (17" capable of 1280X1024 @ 60hz in XP and previously
#DisplaySize 340 270 # mm
### Comment all HorizSync and VertRefresh values to use DDC:
HorizSync 31.0 - 60.0
VertRefresh 56.0 - 75.0
Note the print documentation for the monitor says that the HorizSync is 31 -
80 and this is what I had it set as in Fiesty, but the monitor itself seems
to only claim the max of 60.
I have tried various modelines in this section with no success.
The driver: (commented lines removed)
VendorName "ATI Technologies Inc"
BoardName "Radeon RV100 QY [Radeon 7000/VE]"
any help greatly appreciated.

Exuberance is better than taste.
