This is the patch I use to force a default res of 1024x768 @16bit none

Description Tim Fletcher 2005-08-23 12:35:53 EDT
Description of problem:

I have built a custom Netboot setup (loosely based on the Slim project) but I
would like to make use of the autoconfigation tools that are part of fedora
core. To this end I would like to be able to set the default resolution (that
kudzu and system-config-display pick if they can't get one off a monitor).
Currently I can do this by hacking the source of xhwstate.py and rebuilding the
rpm but this is less than ideal as a long term solution. I would really like to
have a file in /etc/sysconfig that would allow me to tweak defaults like this.

I know that this can "give you enough rope to shoot yourself in the foot" but
assuming there are big warnings in the config file and sensible defaults I think
that this is a useful enhancement

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): rhpl-0.167-1


How reproducible: Always (assuming a monitor that doesn't DCC correctly)


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run kudzu / system-config-display with a none dcc monitor (or in my case I
have a lot of monitors that return incorrect dcc data)
2.
3.
  
Actual results:

kudzu or system-config-display (without flags) produces a 800x600 display
Expected results:

What sorts of hacks are you doing to xhwstate.py?  I don't think putting the
resolution into a file is going to go over very well, but perhaps we can make
rhpxl (the x portions of what were in rhpl) easier to use for you.

We are now using X's autoconfiguration and detection code for all this stuff. 
Please try with FC6 test 2 and let me know if this is more suitable for what you
are trying to achieve.
