Description of problem:
When installing on a Dell Inspiron 8200 laptop with 1600x1200 screen
and nVidia GeForce 440 Go video I choose the 'Dell 1600x1200 Laptop Display
Panel' when specifying the monitor.
But on graphical boot at end of install the screen resolution is 1024x768,
in a 'window' on a black background. After reconfiguring for 1660x1200 and
rebooting everything is OK.
The same happens on a inspiron 8100 with 1400x1050 screen.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
after installing and starting up the screen should have 1600x1200 resolution.
The monitor, perhaps somewhat confusingly, doesn't change the
resolution to be what it can support (partly because even if you have
an actual monitor that supports 1600x1200 or say 2048x1600, you really
don't want to run that resolution). If you boot the installer with
resolution=1600x1200, that resolution will get used during the install
and preserved for post-install.
Will try to think about different ways to handle this in the future.
