Here is my xorg.conf file. The problem is that my resolution setting 1600x900 is getting ignored. The resolution keeps popping to 1280x1024

Edit The resolution comes up as 640x480 after unplugging the physical monitor. When my file gets ignored, the system seems to read my monitor to find it's capabilities automatically. What I want is to access the system through a Lights Out Manager KVM device, so the physical monitor does not matter.

What is wrong with this file?

Edit: /var/log/Xorg.0.log after putting the config to what is shown above (there is a 3000 character limit so I will put dots in place of some of the log information that seems redundant)

I can't see anything obviously wrong. Maybe the X server doesn't like your modeline for some reason. Post the relevant parts of /var/log/Xorg.0.log (the whole thing if you're unsure what's relevant). –  Gilles Nov 6 '10 at 19:28
    
I am sorry, I thought that those files were not touched since a few hours before my last attempt, but it turned out that the clock was wrong. I will post the log –  George Bailey Nov 7 '10 at 16:43

I think it is my video card. I switched from Xorg to Xsun and it seems no matter what I choose using Xsun, I will always get one of 1600x1200, 1280x1024, 1024x768, 800x600 or 640x480. So I switched back to Xorg and I will settle with the choices that work.
