Description of problem:
During installation the screen is on the alf side of the dispay.
Configuring the resolution at the end is possible set only 640x480
and not 1024x768.With fc2 t2 and t1 oll is OK.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.install with cd
On install FC asks for display size preference back to back.
After install, I checked both XF86Config and xorg.conf. It appears
that XF86Config was getting the first video setting pref. and the
second one was setting xorg.conf.
The Display settings GUI allows you to modify xorg.conf as expected
and does make the modifications. The Screen Resolution Pref. tool only
gives you the 640x480 option.
May or may not be of help I am using a Dell P991 monitor.
Please only use xorg.conf, as XF86Config is for XFree86, and Xorg
uses it only as a fallback. Having both files can cause a lot of
confusion, both for the X server, the user, and the developer. Just
delete XF86Config and rerun "system-config-display --reconfig" if
you're unsure what to do.
Once you can confirm the problem persists on a fresh configuration,
using xorg.conf, edit the xorg.conf file and in the monitor section
you may see some lines commented out along with a comment explaining
to uncomment them. Uncomment these lines if present, and save the
config, then restart the X server and see if the problem goes away.
Does this fix the problem? If so, this may be related to bug #120950
Thanks in advance.
Deleting XF86Config did not solve the problem.
Uncomment the HorizSync and VertRefresh fixed the problem, so it looks
liek it may be related to #120950
