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)
All packages selected via the box at the end.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
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.
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
