    You need to hack your own modelines into the thinstation x.org configuration. I know of no way to do this manually. You will have to build x.org manually yourself and add it to your thinstation image.

    no you have to create your own build package, rather than binaries. I suspect you're going to run in to trouble with this if you have no prior experience.

    Yeah, I know. It sucks. Hopefully the Thinstation devs will address this shortcoming at some point.

    I'd file a bug report with the Thinstation devs. That'd be the best way to get this fixed.
