Sigh... so it seems OF is the only way to get an EDID for your monitor, new
patch attached, try it *without* "video=VGA-1:e".

Xmoto uses OpenGL to draw itself, so yes, it's 3d. And by the way, your card
needs the classic mesa drivers instead of gallium, to build them pass
"--with-dri-drivers=nouveau" instead of "--enable-gallium-nouveau" to the mesa
configure script.
