Description Trond Eivind Glomsrød 2000-03-10 08:20:47 EST
Snapshot 6.1.98

I have a Dell Inspiron 3500 laptop with a 1024x768 LCD panel and a 2.5 MB
Neomagic chipset.

I used kickstart configuration with the LCD panel specified, but kickstart
produced a 640x480 file. This isn't a good choice for a laptop...

(I know how to produce my own file, I'd just prefer it to work in the
kickstart mode :)

Forwarding this issue to a developer.
Comment 4 Brock Organ 2000-05-03 18:39:59 EDT
does it still behave this way using 6.2? ... does adding a post-section running
Xconfigurator improve things...?

(ie appending this to your kickstart file:
Xconfigurator --kickstart

It's yours to fix. :)
Comment 6 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-08-02 09:43:02 EDT
It still happens with Xconfigurator --kickstart...
Comment 7 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-08-02 09:52:24 EDT
Not if I specify the monitor correctly - doh. (this monitor had changed from
4.3.37 to CVS)
