Description lglewis 2000-06-16 06:21:40 UTC
I've just installed Redhat 6.2.  During the install, Xconfigurator 
detected my monitor as a ME17d99.  The horizontal and vertical sync rates 
it gave for this monitor were exactly those for my monitor, but in the 
reverse order; that is, the horizontal rate was given as the vertical 
rate, and vice versa.  My guess is that there is an error in the table 
used to store monitor information.  The X configuration failed if I 
accepted this identification of my monitor.  By selecting a custom monitor 
and entering the actual rates, I was able to configure X-windows.  
However, my impression is that my custom configuration doesn't work very 
well.  About an inch of screen is left blank on the left side.

This would be in the installer, not Xconfigurator. Matt?

Fixed in next release

Comment 3 Brock Organ 2000-07-18 18:50:27 UTC
as we do not have the exact monitor described above in our test lab, we did not
verify the new settings in test ... please reopen if this is still a problem in
the next release ... thanks for your report!
