Description Silvio Levy 2002-11-10 20:09:32 UTC
Description of Problem: My monitor is the ViewSonic VG191b, and at the resolution for which it is meant to be used (1280x1024), the system places the image too far to the right to fit in the monitor screen (even if one tries to use the manual monitor controls to bring the image back). This happens only at high resolution, which is necessary for my work. I have reported the problem to Xi computers, from whom I bought the machine, and they see exactly the same problem, so it's not a problem caused by me. Xi computers also tried it under RedHat 8, but they still get the same problem. I have been walked through Xconfigurator but this did not make any difference. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Red Hat Linux 7.3 Professional (RHF0088US) Also present under 8 How Reproducible: Totally reproducible. Steps to Reproduce: 1. connect system to a VG191b monitor 2. configure the system (using e.g. Xconfigurator) to 1280x1024 resolution 3. On the monitor, click button 1 (main menu) and select auto-image-adjust. The image (if it wasn't already too far to the right) will move to the right and no amount of fiddling after that, either with the monitor controls or with Xconfigurator, will place it back. However, at a lower resolution, or outside of the X server, the image is in the right place. Actual Results: Image appears too far to the right on the monitor. Expected Results: Image should be centered (or centerable) on the monitor. Additional Information:

There's no such thing as a "monitor driver", perhaps you mean the video driver? Please attach your X server log file and config file using the link below. Thanks.

Created attachment 84484 [details] This is the file XF86Config-4 on my system

You wrote: Please attach your X server log file and config file using the link below. I've sent the config file; I'm not sure what "log file" you mean, but I'm about to send the files .xsession-errors for the current run. (Note that I'm currently using runlevel 3 and going into X within my own account, but the bug I reported happens whether I use runlevel 3 or 5.)

Created attachment 84485 [details] This is the .xsession-errors for my current session - let me know what other log files you need
Comment 5 Mike A. Harris 2002-12-18 20:28:43 UTC
Xsession errors is pretty useless to me. That shows errors and warnings from userland applicaations, GNOME, GTK, etc. and not XFree86 messages. /var/log/XFree86.0.log is the XFree86 log file, and /etc/X11/XF86* is the XFree86 config files. Without these files, there is nothing here for me to even troubleshoot. Please attach X logs and configs to all bug reports in the future right from the outset, otherwise a bug report just gets lost in the maze of reports, and it takes 8 months to get decent info from someone before I can even look into the issue they're reporting. Usually by then, they don't care about the issue any more, or are frustrated that nobody has looked at it in so long.

Comment 7 Mike A. Harris 2004-09-24 18:46:48 UTC
Please upgrade to Fedora Core 2 or later, and if this issue turns out to still be reproduceable, please file a bug report in the X.Org bugzilla located at http://bugs.freedesktop.org in the "xorg" component. Once you've filed your bug report to X.Org, if you paste the new bug URL here, Red Hat will continue to track the issue in the centralized X.Org bug tracker, and will review any bug fixes that become available for consideration in future updates.
