fbmodes is a package of utilities for generating display modes. First, you input the desired display resolution and vertical refresh rate, and the program calculates all the obscure numbers and produces X11 modelines, fbset mode descriptions, and SVGATextMode mode entries. After previewing the mode a few times and fine-tuning the values, you soon have the mode you desire.

Release Notes: Support for X11 mode preview/testing was added.
Release Notes: Version 1.2.1 had misconception of X11 modelines; they now generate correctly. This version also adds the program "xf86mode" which explains an X11 modeline and a script "fb2x.rb" (written in Ruby) which converts a framebuffer mode description to an X11 modeline.
Release Notes: Updated documentation, and updated makefiles for gcc 3.1 compatibility.
Release Notes: This version reorganizes the source code so that in the future, fbmodes won't have to depend on the framebuffer console.
Release Notes: Updates to documentation and build/archiving scripts.
