Description of problem:
The installation procedure detects my monitor correctly for it's own
use but the monitor is not detected for configuring the system.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
When the installation starts (I use PXE to bootstrap) and wants to
switch to graphics mode it correctly detects my monitor for it's own
use: Compaq P700.
I have a ks.cfg with automatic x server detection that does a large
portion of the installation procedure automatically.
xconfig --defaultdesktop=KDE --startxonboot
However when the installation has been completed and the system starts
the X server and uses an "Unprobed Monitor" and is limited to 800x600.
For some strange reasong the installation knows what my monitor is but
cannot store and use this knowledge.
Actual Results: Monitor not detected for the final configuration.
Expected Results: Monitor correctly detected.
