Description of problem:
I have the 1600x1200 screen and the ATI Rage Mobility M4 graphics
card. During the install process on both test2 and test3 I have a
weird line down the middle of the screen that has garbage in it.
During the reboot after the install the during first-time configure
the screen is completly messed up. IE three half copies of the screen
on my monitor. I set my screen resolution to 1600x1200 reboot and X
I manually edited XF86Config to try and use just the vesa driver but
X still won't boot.
I had a stupid little mistake in my xorg.conf file i typed in vsea
not vesa. It work now with using the vesa driver.
Fedora Core 2 test 3 does not ship with XFree86. We have replaced
XFree86 with X.org X11 in test2 and later releases. The new X
server is named "Xorg" and uses the config file /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Please ensure your system is updated to the latest updates from
rawhide, and then attach your /var/log/Xorg.0.log logfile and your
xorg.conf config file as individual uncompressed file attachments
using the bugzilla link below, and I will review them for
Thanks in advance.
I forgot to mention... for the above, first run:
Then startx with the generated config file.
I'm also seeing this problem. (Dell Inspiron 8000, ATI Rage Mobility
M4, 1600x1200)... From the 'hardware' section of the display tool, I
have "Dell 1600x1200 Laptop Display Panel" selected.
To fix, I had to go into xorg.conf, and uncomment the lines
after "### Uncomment if you don't want to default to DDC":
HorizSync 31.5 - 90
VertRefresh 59.0 - 85.0
After that, it worked fine.
I had the same problem...I fixed it by manually changing the color
depth from 24 to 16. Now running fine at 1400x1050.
Still having problem.
I looked into the xorg.conf, but couldn't find "Uncomment if you don't
wan tto default to DDC" line.
Reducing color depth from 24 to 16 works, but I prefer keeping at 24.
I work extensively with graphics.
This issue was resolved in the final release of Fedora Core 2.
Setting status to "CURRENTRELEASE"
