Description Jonathan S. Shapiro 2005-05-02 02:29:50 UTC
Description of problem: When configuring a new wxga laptop, the display drop box includes 1280x800mode, but the resolution dropbox does not. Need to add 1280x800 to the resolution drop list. Bug probably exists in x86_64 as well, but have not tested separately.
Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2005-06-02 21:27:08 UTC
Moving to FC5Target, as FC4 is 'done', barring release blockers that pop up.
Comment 2 Adam Jackson 2006-04-19 17:14:30 UTC
please attach your Xorg.0.log.
Comment 3 Jonathan S. Shapiro 2006-06-27 18:31:16 UTC
Somebody moved this bug incorrectly. It is NOT a bug in system-config-display. It is a bug in the kickstart scripting language, and consequently in the system-config-kickstart utility. It is also a problem in firstboot. Note that firstboot does not depend in any way on the X11 config. The problem is simply that no option to select 1280x800 (WXGA) resolution is provided in either tool. Since this is is now a nearly universal resolution on newer laptops, it seems like a good idea to add it. The fix is to add this option to the kickstart file choices and the system-config-kickstart utility, and (if needed) to firstboot as well. Please reopen this bug and reassign it to the kickstart team.

It isn't completely clear to me at least, what exactly it is you are reporting/requesting here. I have confirmed that the X server contains the requested video modes, so they should be visible in system-config-display as available modes as well, since it shares the extramodes file with the X server. Closing bug as being fixed in RAWHIDE, however if you believe that what you are trying to request is not already present, then please reopen the bug, reassign it to the component that you believe is lacking the feature you are asking for, and try to explain exactly what you are wanting more clearly. Thanks in advance.

>system-config-display is what configures the X server. I don't see how >kickstart is relevant. Then you didn't read the original bug report carefully enough. This was NEVER a bug with system-config-display. This is a bug in the initial display configuration that is accomplished using system-config-kickstart, and also in the firstboot stuff. Try this: run system-config-kickstart. Do what you need to do to get to the place where it wants to configure the initial X resolution. Try to set it to 1280x800. You can't. There is no such choice on the menu. You also cannot do it by hand, because the kickstart file's "xconfig --resolution" option will not accept 1280x800 as a legal input. So, once again: please reassign this to anaconda or system-config-kickstart (which is where I had it originally), and please actually *read* the bug report and the subsequent discussion before you jump to conclusions.
Comment 6 Jonathan S. Shapiro 2006-07-26 15:01:34 UTC
Andy: something very very weird is going on here. This bug was originally filed against FC5 and system-config-kickstart (both of which states I have just restored). Somehow it got incorrectly moved to system-config-display (which is wrong) and associated with FC4test3 (which is wrong). I can see how this led to confusion. The reason I'm bringing it to your attention is that I'm wondering how the bug got misfiled. I'm pretty sure that I didn't file it that badly.
Comment 7 Jonathan S. Shapiro 2006-07-26 15:06:28 UTC
Hmm. Also, I apologize for the "didn't read carefully enough" comment. Given that the original bug was misfiled, you definitely didn't have enough context to decipher what the heck I was talking about. Sorry -- not enough sleep and I should know better.
Comment 8 Chris Lumens 2006-07-27 21:53:31 UTC
Added to the resolution list in system-config-kickstart. The firstboot display module is currently disabled because we're using X autoconfiguration now, so that's no longer an issue.
