Description of problem:
gnome-display-properties ignores the resolution configured through
redhat-config-xfree86 (the value in /etc/X11/XF86Config), resolutions higher
than the maximum allowed resolution are still listed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run redhat-config-xfree86 and lower screen resolution below the allowed
maximum (i.e. max=1400x1050, select 1024x768)
2. Restart X
3. Use gnome-display-properties to select maximum resolution (1400x1050)
Actual Results: Garbled display until X is restarted (telinit 3 && telinit 5)
Expected Results: Display set to the selected resolution, if not possible, the
resolutions should not be presented
We just present whatever the XRandR extension gives us (can be seen with e.g.
the xrandr command). If it lists non-working resolution that is an X bug.
I don't completely understand the problem here. Please provide the X
config file and log file being used, and the xrandr commandline that
is resulting in unexpected behaviour.
Fixed in current Rawhide; xrandr only lists resolutions up to the maximum
specified in XF86Config
