Description of problem:
1440x900 widescren laptop displays missing. Some of these laptops are
built on Clevo D470W, D470V. I have a Clevo D470W, so if I can help to
provide datas (modelines for example) to place an entry in hwdata, i
will help.

I usually set up my Fedora with 1024x768 Gneric LCD, and after change
the display resolution manually in /etc/X11/XF86Config.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure the display with system-config-display

Yes, have a look at the other hwdata bugs, to see what information is
needed and how to retrieve that information automatically from your
system (if possible).


Comment 2 Göbölös Zoltán 2004-03-05 11:18:28 UTC
Okay. There are at least two types of panels:

1) Samsung LTN170W1

2) LG.Philips LP171W01

Both of them has a 1440x900 16:10 aspect ratio.

The line in the MonitorsDB can be:

Generic LCD Display; LCD Panel 1440x900; 0; 31.5 - 100.0; 59.0 - 75.0

Comment 3 Göbölös Zoltán 2004-03-06 09:57:14 UTC
Sorry, the correct line with dpms info is:

Generic LCD Display; LCD Panel 1440x900; 0; 31.5 - 100.0; 59.0 - 75.0; 1

Thes LCDs are connected through LVDS port. As far as I know, this
technology omitting DAC, so the vertical and horizontal freqs are
