Description of problem:
When installing a Gateway VX900 monitor (19" CRT), there are two
identical entries in the selection list if manually selecting the
monitor type instead of probing (probing leads to system lockup after
reboot -- bug 122219). Selecting either one seems to give the same
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC2T3 and manually select monitor brand 'Gateway'.
2. Select model type VX900.
3. There are two identical menu entries.
Actual Results: On my system, an Athlon XP-M 1400+ with S3 SavagePro
KM133, selecting either VX900 entry leads to system lockup after
reboot (bug 122219).
Expected Results: There should only be one VX900 menu entry, unless
the two are really different, in which case there should be some
further explanation on why they are different and some info to help
selecting the correct one.
This problem aalso exists in Fedora Core 1 with XFree86. This
situation is mentioned as part of bug 122219 but it's probably not
This is not a bug. It was my mistake. The bug does still exist in
Fedora Core 1 though. See bug 122219. Even though there is one menu
entry for the VX900 (actually there is also a VX900T) the system still
doesn't handle it correctly in later stages. By default the system
wants to install at 640x480 resolution with 800x600 as the only other
choice. xorg.conf has these two resolutions and 1024x768 as choices.
I have to uncomment the HorizSync and VertRefresh lines in
xorg.conf and reboot and things work normally after that.
