Description Gerald Teschl 2003-03-29 09:59:53 UTC
Description of problem:
I just replaced a broken vga card. kudzu notices the change and
offers to reconfigur X. Unfortunately it does not only changes
the vga driver, but also changes the resolution from 1024x768
to 800x600. Obviously the problem is that it fails to probe
the monitor:

Checking for new hardware* ddcprobe returned bogus values:
ID:   None
Name: None
HorizSync: None
VertSync:  None

However, I feel it should take the old values, or at least offer to
keep the old values.

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

How reproducible:

kudzu just calls redhat-config-xfree86.

Comment 2 Brent Fox 2003-04-25 16:53:25 UTC
This is going to be hard to do for not much perceivable gain, IMHO.  Most modern
monitors can be correctly probed these days.  Closing as 'wontfix'.
