Description Douglas Furlong 2004-05-04 09:21:55 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6)

Description of problem:
When setting the screen resolution, using system-config-display, it
accepts the settings fine, however on a restart, the resolution stays
at 600*480.

ATI 9200 Graphics card (detected automaticly)
Vision Master 450 Monitor (unknown monitor manually selected from the

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Remove all previous configuration files
2. Run system-config-display
3. Select the monitor from the Monitor Type List
4. Set the screen resolution (1600*1200)
5. Set the Color Depth (Millions of Colors).
6. Restart X

Actual Results:  On the restart of X, the settings appear not to have
taken effect.

When going back in to system-config-display, the screen resolution is
set to 640*480 (with a second option of 800*600).

When going to the hardware tab, the monitor is still selected.

REselecting the monitor, then going to the settings tab, the
previously set resolution is now set as the Resolution option (if that
makes sense).

I have found no way of getting these settings to actually take effect.

Expected Results:  On the restart of X for the selected screen
resolution (1600*1200) to take effect.

Additional info:

I think this problem may be related to the fact that my monitor can
not be detected automaticly.

When starting system-config-display from the command line I see this

* ddcprobe returned bogus values:
ID: None
Name: None
HorizSync: None
VertSync: None

I have set this severity level to High, as this is preventing me from
using my system (I would consider this sevear, even if it does not
result in loss of data etc.).

I shall submit the three X log files shortly.

This has been marked as a duplicate of 121489, however, after reading
this bug I don't see how it is related to this bug.

The problem is not just related to the duplicate running of a display
configuration tool, it is also the failure to set/activate any changes
to the system.

On second thought, it's just a minor annoyance.  Let's get test3 out
the door and I'll dupe the bug reports to this one.

In no way can the problem I am suffering (and have described here) as
a minor anoiance. I am left with a resolution of 640*480, that can not
be increased using the gui tools provided. I can only assume then that
this is a seporate problem.
