Hmm.  You generally can not change the refresh rate on Intel hardware,
as the video driver is limited to what the BIOS provides.  Not sure if
what you're seeing is a real bug, or due to this limitation in the Intel
driver.  If the latter however, the output of xrandr could probably be
more clear about it.

Can you attach your X server log file and config file?  Once we've got
those, we'll try to determine if this behaviour is expected or not.

Thanks in advance.

Comment 12 Mike A. Harris 2005-08-30 07:15:27 UTC
The file attachments in comment #10 and 11 are unreadable.

As mentioned above, the refresh rate only shows up correctly when it
can be determined.  When it can not be determined, the xrandr utility
displays 0Hz.  This is a cosmetic issue only, however if you would prefer
xrandr to display "N/A" (for not available) or some other more friendly
output, you can file a bug in the X.Org bugzilla at: in the "xorg" component, and an X.Org developer
will review your request.

Setting status to NOTABUG, as it has been determined this is not a bug,
but a cosmetic issue only.
