Description of problem:
My monitor happens to be a Sharp Aquos LCD TV which has a PC input
that can do nothing higher than 1024x768 @ 60 HZ.
When installing, it said it didn't recognize my monitor (not
surprising), so I told it "generic LCD 1024x768" and selected 60 HZ.
When it booted the first time, the screen immediately switched to
a "Out of Range" message.
Dragging in an old 17" CRT and hooking it up allowed me to poke
around and find that even though I told it 1024x768, it actually
picked 1280x960. I had to change the resolution to 800x600 to
get it to work on the Aquos.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. During fedora install tell it generic LCD 1024x768, 60 HZ
Actual Results: Resolution is actually set to 1280x960
Expected Results: Should have been 1024x768
Hmmm... I don't see that here. Can you attach the XF86Config anaconda
I'm afraid the original config is long gone, but I have
discovered that whatever happened seemed to be an artifact
of the install.
I was able to configure 1024x768 after getting back to where I
could see the screen again, and it seemed to work fine on the
Aquos, so I'm now running at 1024x768. (I used the "System
Setting" > "Display" tool to set the monitor to generic LCD
1024x768 - the same setting that went wrong during the install).
We've completely changed around where X configuration happens, so this
should be better now.
