LEGAL INFORMATION / DISCLAIMER
------------------------------

This whole package is distributed under the GNU General Public License (GPL)
The license text itself is no longer included in the videogen package.

INTRODUCTION
------------

If you are reading this, you probably already know what videogen
can be used for: to generate XFree86 Modelines and Linux fbset timings
which provide the highest possible (or the desired) refresh rate at
any given resolution.



INSTALLATION
------------

The sources are using lex/yacc to generate some files. I have chosen
to include these files with the source release (generated by GNU Flex
and GNU Bison) so that you don't need these tools to compile the package.

  1.) check "Makefile" and modify it according to your OS/environment
  2.) do a "make"
  3.) do a "make install" to install the binary and the manpage
 *4.) you can do a "make clean" to remove the binaries from the source dir
 *5.) you can do a "make distclean" to remove other junk files too
 *6.) you can do a "make realclean" to remove the lex/yacc generated files too
 *7.) you can remove the installed binary and manpage with "make uninstall"

 *) optional steps



USAGE
-----

videogen user interface changed greatly with the version 0.30. Now you
can use both command line options and a configuration file to set the
parameters for the calculations.

You should take a look at the videogen.sample configuration file.

For further information read the videogen(1x) manpage.



PROBLEM REPORTING
-----------------

If you are reporting a problem, it is best when you can provide detailed
information like your exact monitor and graphics card make/model, settings
you used to generate a particular Modeline, picture position on the screen
with a particular Modeline or description of the screen artifacts when the
generated Modeline is considered bad.

Thank you in advance!
