I had a pretty new Tecra 8100 that I managed to get working at 1024x768 for
The tricky bit if I remember correctly was tweaking the XF86Config (once I
realised the Xserver was working ok). I don't have the machine anymore but I
remember searching google.com and found an config file that was excellent.
However I also noticed there are a lot of web sites with info and varying
ways of getting it to work satisfactorily depending on the model.
