Description Lawrence MacIntyre 2004-05-06 14:13:36 UTC

Description of problem:
I have tried to set the display to 800x600, 1024x768, and 1280x1024,
the display always starts up as 640x480.  Ctrl-Alt-+ has no effect.  I
saw one bug report with this card on Opteron (I'm using an Athlon64)
that said DRI wasn't working, but glxgears reports 3700 fps, which I
interpret as meaning that it works just fine on this machine.  Fedora
Core 1 on this machine is working at 1280x1024.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install Fedora Core 2 Test 3
2.Boot machine, start X
3.Notice that you only get 640x480 display

Actual Results:  Display is 640x480

Expected Results:  Display should be 1280x1024

Additional info:

Using a ViewSonic VX900 1280x1024 LCD monitor.

I caught the commented out HorizSync and VertRefresh, and added them
back, but it didn't help.  I also tried to use the XF86Config from the
(working) FC1 partition.  It didn't help either.

Comment 3 Mike A. Harris 2004-05-07 12:33:37 UTC
From a session which reproduces the above problem, please attach
your X server config file and log file as individual uncompressed
file attachments, while using that config file.  This may shed some
light and assist in troubleshooting.

Thanks in advance.

Xorg.log.0 using above XF86Config

Comment 6 Phil Anderson 2004-05-07 13:34:34 UTC
Shouldn't you be attaching your /etc/X11/xorg.conf?  I don't think
xorg-x11 uses XF86Config anymore.  There was a bug which accidently
created that file, but that bug has been fixed.  Try uncommenting
VertRefresh and HorizSync in your xorg.conf file instead.

Comment 7 Lawrence MacIntyre 2004-05-07 14:06:03 UTC
Doh!  I had no idea that the config file name was changed.  Thanks! 
It works fine now.  So far, all is well with FC2t3!
