P Touchman, thank you for moving the matter here.
Looking at the log, it appears that OpenChrome DDX was able to detect the
presence of a VGA cable and polled the I2C bus address, but was not able to
obtain EDID (Extended Display ID) from the monitor.
Can you try this with another VGA cable?
If this is not possible, can you clean the cable contacts?
It is always possible that the cable might have a bent pin as well.
If that does not work, you may want to try a different monitor.
