Description of problem:
Resolution values provided for the Dell 1701FP LCD monitor are too
low.  Default resolution on this monitor is 1280x1024 @ 60Hz.  Setup
only configures for 1024x768.  If the values in /etc/X11/XF86Config
are manually changed to include 1280x1024, everything works as
expected after restarting X.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Menu -> Preferences -> Screen Resolution
2. Resolution stuck at 1024x768 (should allow 1280x1024)
3. Refresh Rate stuck at 75Hz (should prefer 60Hz)

Additional info:

This looks like some other problems that have been reported with
monitors being configured one step below their optimal setting.

Is the monitor correctly probed when the program start?

Comment 2 Bryan J. Casto 2004-02-23 13:59:42 UTC
Anaconda properly probes a Dell 1701FP during install.

Comment 3 Brent Fox 2004-03-05 22:28:47 UTC
Anaconda automatically sets 1024x768 as the default resolution for all
monitors.  You should be able to use system-config-display to change
the resolution after installation.  I have a Dell 1702FP on my machine
(which is virtually identical to the 1701 FP) but I do not see this

Are you saying that system-config-display will not allow you to choose
a resolution higher than 1024x768?  

Also, as root, run the following: "/usr/sbin/ddcprobe" and paste the
results to this bug report.
