Hi folks,

LiveCD 6.1.1.2

Have a 19" Philips LCD Monitor (190B) newly installed.  At booting
LiveCD ran;

boot: linux vga=795

After bootup runlevel 3, ran;

# startx

could not start X-server with following warning displayed;
CANNOT DISPLAY THIS VIDEO
MOD, CHANGE COMPUTER DISPLAY
INPUT 1280X1024 at 60HZ

Tried 794 and 792 with the same result.

Finally edited /etc/X11/xorg.conf, adding following line on SubSection
"Display";
Modes    "1280x1024" "1024x768"

Re-ran
# startx

X-server started.

Please advise what mistake I committed at boot.  TIA

Remark:This LCD monitor worked on other LiveCD without problem. 
Resolution setting was automatically detected.

B.R.
