I'm having a problem trying to set my VGA output on my laptop, connected to a 1080p 22" lcd. 1440x900 works fine, but trying "xrandr --newmode "1920x1080_60.00" 173.00 1920 2048 2248 2576 1080 1083 1088 1120 -hsync +vsync" I get a horizontally squashed picture, leaving large black spaces on either side. The TV's internal resolution display says it's in 1920x1080 mode.

edit: just discovered it likes "1600x900_60.00" in software, while the tv firmware reports 1440x900?


Anybody know how I can get my Sony Bloggie MHS-FS1 working as a webcam on Slackware? It's not in the device list, is there a preffered default option? Any help, thanks.
