Hi there!
I recently bought my very first non-x86 computer, it's a 12" 1GHz G4 iBook. MacOSX is very nice, but I miss gentoo more and more... Now, it was a hard time accepting the fact that I'll get no java plugin, no flash and no sleep support, but now, I think I can do without those... Still, one point remains obscure. I'm used to configuring X and I know that it asks for the monitor specs at one moment. It needs HorizSync and VertRefresh. How do I get those for my new iBook? I couldn't find anything on apple's part, neither by some heavy googling.... I hope someone here can help !!

Thanks in advance...

here you go:


Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Monitor0"
VendorName "Monitor Vendor"
ModelName "Monitor Model"
HorizSync 30 - 70
VertRefresh 50.0 - 160.0
EndSection


this is from my ibook g3 800mhz 12 inch (same 12 inch screen as yours)
