Description Damian Menscher 2003-10-25 23:38:44 EDT
Description of problem:
When installing on a Dell Inspiron 8500 (laptop), my screen was not
auto-detected.  Its screen resolution is 1920x1200, but that was not an option
under the list of LCD sizes.  After booting, though, going to Start ->
Preferences -> Screen Resolution listed 1920x1200, so it looks like anaconda is
just missing this from its list of allowed values.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install and try to select 1920x1200 as your screen resolution

I am having this same problem on FC2 on a Dell Latitude D800.
Display is 1920x1200 WUXGA LCD, but there is no option for that
resolution for that resolution, even if I set the monitor to 1920x1200
generic LCD.

The errata doesn't seem to apply to Fedora.

I have hwdata-0.120-1
