Thanks for information!

I'm busy working on the new grml-x-system. Currently it looks like (much
more colors in reality ;-)):

| % grml-x wmi
| Specified windowmanager is wmi
| Video is ATI Technologies Inc RV350 AP [Radeon 9600] using XFree86(radeon) Server
| Monitor is ddc
| Using Modes [TODO]
| Creating /etc/X11/XF86Config-4: done
| Now trying to run startx on display 7.

If it fails you get messages like the following one (if running from
inside screen):

| It seems you are running grml-x from inside GNU screen.
| Notice that this might fail if running as user grml! Please exit screen and try to run grml-x again.


| Monitor frequency too high or too low? Just specify hsync/vsync manually:
|   grml-x -hsync 60 -vsync 60 ...
| Problems with the module used for X? Try to load another one or fall back to module fbdev:
|   grml-x -module radeon ...
|   grml-x -module fbdev  ...
| Want to adjust the resolution? Use the mode-switch:
|   grml-x -mode 1024x768 ...
|   grml-x -mode '1200x1024 1024x768' ...
| Report bugs, send wishes and feedback to the grml team:
| http://www.grml.org/ - contact (at) grml.org

I plan to do all the X-stuff in one single shellscript so it should
be easy to test for everyone. As soon as I have a first
"public-version" available I will let you know.
