How to get timing information on vesafb framebuffer?
I'm running Kubuntu 7.10 on a 32bit machine with a GeForce 8600GT card.
I've activated the vesafb framebuffer as described at bugs.launchpad.net
Everything works fine, but I'd like to get some information on the framebuffer timings.
Basically, I'm looking for a program that does the same thing as fbset, which unfortunately does not support vesafb:
That's exactly the information I need, but... it's erroneous. My screen is not running at 76.649 Hz, but 59.6 Hz.
$ fbset -x
# D: 131.096 MHz, H: 80.328 kHz, V: 76.649 Hz
HTimings 1280 1312 1472 1632
VTimings 1024 1028 1032 1048
Flags "-HSync" "-VSync"
Any ideas on how to get the correct information?
