Red Hat "The Fedora Project attracts a lot of interest from the Linux faithful. While there are perhaps more newbie-friendly, corporate-friendly, or special-interest-focused distributions, Fedora continues to wear the innovation hat. Fedora announced Fedora 9 Beta late last month, and Test Center reviewers replaced the current Fedora 8 install to see what the new version has to offer. Since Fedora 9 (Stirling) is still in beta, occasional bugs and some rough edges were inevitable. But there is a solid indication of the new things to come that makes the stable release, expected May 1, worth watching."

Out of curiosity, what card and driver?

AGP GPU ATI Radeon If R250 / 9200 with 128 MB, running with the built-in ati driver. Eizo FlexScan F980 21" CRT attached to analog VGA port.

If you've added mode lines and all that to no effect, you may be fighting a video driver issue.

I think so, too, it must be a change from XFree86 towars (because it worked / works with XFree86 4.3. Even setting everything to audodetect does not work, it results in a strange and asymmetrical resolution (I think it was 1152x768 or something similar), the picture was "outside the screen" and the monitor needed manual adjustment.

Also, perhaps telling the driver to ignore EDIDs, if it supports such an option, might help?

I'll surely try this, thank you.
