Thanks for your prompt reply! I installed the two modules you
suggested and the script no longer complains about it. Good!
Unfortunately it still get (new) error messages:
(EE) DL(0): Unknown EDID version 146
(EE) DL(0): Unknown EDID version 31
If I ran the same script again, I get the same two error messages, but
the version number differs each time. I tried to google this error
message but I couldn't find anything concrete. In case this matters,
I tried this on an xubuntu 11.04laptop with a GMA4500 GPU, and a xubuntu
10.10 netbook with GMA945. Same error messages (different version
Thanks for your help and suggestion.
