Hi, I've just found this via Google.
I'm a newbee having installed Linux (Redhat 9) for the very first time
an hour ago! I have problems with the same monitor SUN0567 -or- my VIDEO
card configuration (I have a DELL Dimension 1100 that seems to use an
"82865G Intel Graphics Controler"). Any clues please?
The quality of the display is very poor and everything is magnified
on the screen ... my first night with Linux nothing is probed correctly!
Mass-closing lots of old bugs which are in MODIFIED (and thus presumed to be
fixed). If any of these are still a problem, please reopen or file a new bug
against the release which they're occurring in so they can be properly tracked.
