I've got trouble with changing the vertical refresh using the vesa and
the radeonhd driver. The proprietary doesn't work. My ATI is an on-board
Radeon X1250-based. The vertical refresh for my monitor is set to 59.8
Hz and that isn't funny. I have to add that my monitor isn't able to get
higher than 68 or 69 Hz, even if X can be set to higher values, so I
can't test if vertical refresh around 80 Hz or higher are able. My Linux
are Suse 11.0, 11.1 RC, 64 Studio 2.1 Etch and 64 Studio 2.1 Lenny. On
the 64 Studio list there is a guy with a NVidia 6200, his install is a
64 Studio 2.1 Lenny, he wrote:
