Description of problem:
I installed FC2 test 3, it booted up. After booting up, it said X is
not configured and it prompted me to do that. I entered the monitor
parameters, resolution and number of colors.
Then it went through the Welcome screen, then License Agreement, then
Date And Time, then Display.
At this point, it asked me to configure resolution again. But i
already configured resolution previously!
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Maybe it has something to do with the fact that i installed in
text-mode? (booted up the installer with "linux text")
And by the way, when it prompted me the second time (in the Display
screen), i could not choose 1024x768, but only lower resolutions,
although the first time i could choose 1024x768 and my system works
fine in that resolution - it's using it right now, at the gdm login
Now it's in 1024x768, even though i selected 800x600 the second time
(because i could not choose a higher res).
Ok, i rebooted the system and it came up in 1024x768.
This is inconsistent behaviour.
I have suffered the same problem as your self, after a clean install.
My monitor is not automaticly detected, and I think this may have some
thing to do with the problem.
I am using an Iiyama Vision Master 450.
At the first screen I am able to choose the monitor and appropraite
screen resolution. Once first boot starts, and I am greeted with the
screen to configure X again, I am unable to choose the monitor, and am
limited to a resolution of either 640*480 or 800*600.
When I reboot the machine, I am greeted with a resolution of 640*480.
After i login and run the system-config-display, I have an intial
Resolution option of 640*480 or 800*600.
When I change to the tab Hardware, all hardware is listed correctly.
If I go to configure the Monitor and select the same one again (Iiyama
S901GT, VisionMaster 450), and then go back to settings, the
resolution of 1600*1200 is automaticly selected (with a maximum of
I think bug 121820 is related, but am not sure.
