Actually this looks fairly interesting (because I went as far as googling, but
not quite as far as just reading knoppix scripts, which is obviously an
integral part of the final solution). I was googling to see whatever happened
to the read-edid program I used, and while it appears to be less than fully
maintained and robust, this appears to be the successor-
(note, despite the nongnu domain name, the tool in question advertises gpl-v2)
that matches your vga (and sometimes monitor I think) hardware. Then
some sed or python or perl to tune things like the user preferred resolution.
I was using this feature immediately after it was released in XFree86 several
years ago in a mandrake-8.0 livecd. Though my appliance only required
so I didn't have to worry too much about how successfully the monitor probing
(edid stuff) worked.
Then if you want to, you can do some more scripting to replace nv with nvidia
etc (assuming you've agreed to all their terms, etc...)
