Description Ed Rushman 2004-05-17 17:36:22 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)

Description of problem:
Install asks for monitor resolution, responded with monitor type (NEC 
3D) and resolution (1024x768). It asked in a later screen (not the 
same) but only 640x480 was available. When GNOME started, only 
640x480 was available in the settings.
Partial workaround: removed all resolutions except 1024x768 
in /etc/X11/xorg.conf and uncommented refresh rate settings, as this 
is not DDC. I can now get 800x600, but 1024x768 puts the refresh rate 
too high (87 Hz). (not installation issues)
Partial hardware list:
P2/350 on BD100
ATI Rage 128 AGP
NEC 3d (monitor, max is 1024x768 at 60Hz)
Install options:
All packages selected via the box at the end.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Select the 'All Packages' option
2.For the first resolution, choose monitor=NEC 3D, 1024x768, 60Hz
3.For the second screen, try to select 1024x768
(see hardware list above)

Actual Results:  Second resolution screen would not allow same 
resolution as first
Actual settings after boot were wrong.

Expected Results:  Resolution/monitor/refresh should only be asked 
After boot, GNOME should have those settings.

Additional info:

It might seem like a gnome issue, but the install should not ask 
twice. Possibly, it is an issue because I chose 'All Packages' and it 
got confused.
