Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 105630
Resolution change screen wacks out
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:31 EST
Description of problem:
I have a lapotp with a 1400x1050 LCD. When I logged into severn test 2 for the
first time my resolution was set to 1024x768 (even though I selected 1400x1050
during install, see bug 105628).
In GNOME I ran the Screen Resolution Preference tool and selected 1400x1050. My
resolution changed, but my screen was wacked out.
See attached screenshot.
I have a Dell Inspiron 4150 with a ATI Radeon Mobility 7500.
I edited my /etc/X11/XF86Config and added 1400x1050 (I had to do it by hand as
redhat-config-xfree86 didn't see to want to make the changes stick, another bug
to filed soon) and bounced to runlevel 3 and back to 5. Resolution changing
seems fine now.

You've mentioned multiple problems here, however of course each should
be in it's own separate bug report so I'll handle only the one problem
reported in Summary...
The screenshot you attach shows that this is likely either an RandR related
driver bug, or a generic RandR bug. RandR is experimental only, however
it'd be nice to track the cause of the problem down, and investigate.
Can you attach your X server log file and config file please?
