Description Tom Horsley 2004-04-10 21:08:55 EDT

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):


How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. During fedora install tell it generic LCD 1024x768, 60 HZ
2.
3.
    

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
generated?
Comment 2 Tom Horsley 2004-04-11 17:36:59 EDT
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.
