I lost track of what precipitated your inability to run openSUSE on your 
display's native 1280x1024, but if you're after getting a Fedora or *buntu 
release from a similar point in time as when the openSUSE release you tried 
was released, prepare yourself for the likelihood that you'll encounter the 
same trouble. What openSUSE, Fedora and *buntu are mostly are packagers, not 
developers. Releases of different distros at similar points in time are 
unlikely to have very different Xorg versions packaged in them, along with 
the same bugs. If you get lucky and don't get the same failure, fine for you, 
but be careful what you expect. You may well wind up needing the exact same 
workaround in others as I suggested for openSUSE: using config file(s) to 
override failing automagic.

Your unfortunate experience is not uncommon, regardless of distro. 
Inexplicable failure is the nature of automagic. Developers are human. 
Hardware is fallible.
