Doing this, the next error message is "needs vsync freq of 116.32 Hz".

Changing this parameter also gives:

	XF86Config: /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/XF86Config
	(**) stands for supplied, (--) stands for probed/default values
	(**) XKB: keycodes: "macintosh"
	(**) XKB: types: "default"
	(**) XKB: compat: "default"
	(**) XKB: symbols: "macintosh/us"
	(**) XKB: geometry: "macintosh"
	(**) XKB: rules: "xfree86"
	(**) XKB: model: "pc101"
	(**) Mouse: type: BusMouse, device: /dev/mouse, buttons: 3
	(**) Mouse: 3 button emulation (timeout: 50ms)
	(**) FBDev: Graphics device ID: "OFfb ATY,RageLT"
	(**) FBDev: Monitor ID: "Apple PowerBook G3"
	(**) FontPath set to "unix/:-1"
	(**) FBDev: Using XF86Config video mode database

	Fatal server error:
	No valid modes found.

Sigh... as long as X11 configuration stays  this  error  prone  Linux
will have hard times to beat M$.
