Description of problem:
Resolution values provided for the Dell 1701FP LCD monitor are too
low. Default resolution on this monitor is 1280x1024 @ 60Hz. Setup
only configures for 1024x768. If the values in /etc/X11/XF86Config
are manually changed to include 1280x1024, everything works as
expected after restarting X.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Menu -> Preferences -> Screen Resolution
2. Resolution stuck at 1024x768 (should allow 1280x1024)
3. Refresh Rate stuck at 75Hz (should prefer 60Hz)
This looks like some other problems that have been reported with
monitors being configured one step below their optimal setting.
Is the monitor correctly probed when the program start?
Anaconda properly probes a Dell 1701FP during install.
Anaconda automatically sets 1024x768 as the default resolution for all
monitors. You should be able to use system-config-display to change
the resolution after installation. I have a Dell 1702FP on my machine
(which is virtually identical to the 1701 FP) but I do not see this
Are you saying that system-config-display will not allow you to choose
a resolution higher than 1024x768?
Also, as root, run the following: "/usr/sbin/ddcprobe" and paste the
results to this bug report.
