Description of problem:
Since dell is shipping the inspiron 8500 with wuxga+ 1920x1200
screen resolution, this mode should be supported
ModelName "Dell 1920x1200 Laptop Display Panel"
DisplaySize 330 210
HorizSync 31.5 - 100.0
VertRefresh 30.0 - 90.0
Seems to work for me.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install severn on inspiron 8500 wuxga+
Please retest on Fedora Core 2 or FC3test1
Does the generic laptop display 1920x1200 work for you?
What is the output of kudzu -p -b ddc
If we can't get the settings via ddc please attach you monitor.inf to
this bug - read the below post for details
Retested on Fedora Core 2 with all updates.
kudzu -p -b ddc
desc: "ATI Technologies Inc. M9"
So it appears ddc gives no love.
Now, how to find a inf file?
Red Hat Linux is no longer supported by Red Hat, Inc. If you are still running
Red Hat Linux, you are strongly advised to upgrade to a current Fedora Core
release or Red Hat Enterprise Linux or comparable. Some information on which
option may be right for you is available at
Red Hat apologizes that these issues have not been resolved yet. We do want to
make sure that no important bugs slip through the cracks. Please check if this
issue is still present in a current Fedora Core release. If so, please change
the product and version to match, and check the box indicating that the
requested information has been provided. Note that any bug still open against
Red Hat Linux by the end of 2006 will be closed as 'CANTFIX'. Thanks again for
This problem still exists when installing FC5. I had to lie to the system and
tell it I had a big 1920x1200 capable LCD monitor.
I tried changing the version above to "5" but it still only gives the Red Hat
version choices. Not the fedora version choices.
This should be fixed in system-config-display 1.0.45-1 and later. Please test,
and reopen this bug if it's still an issue for you.
