so after a hard day's work yesterday i managed to get the JaS 10.4.7 running.

programs worked (except for itunes which said i don't have enough ram after i updated it to the 7th version), but i had a 1024x768 resolution, which kinda sucked.

so i thought i install the macvidia driver to change my res to native and at rebot my LCD (sony SDM-HX 53S) showed an "out of range" 65,7 Hz / 85 Hz warning and staied black.

i wanted to go to the macvidia homepage, but it seems like it's down, so i came here and read all kinds of posts about possible fixes.

i tried the Graphic Mode = 1280x1024@85, the same thing with 60, then i tried adding the boot key into the com.apple.Boot thingy but still same result.

i just can't get the thing working.
did i miss something?

i have an Nvidia FX 5500 256MB.

is there any way to configure the macvidia driver over command line? (starting with -s -x -v flag, fsck -fy etc.)

would really be cool if someone could help

Also
~/Library/Preferences/ByHost/com.apple.windowserver.plist

are not anywhere on an ideneb 1.6 installation.
