Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 125479
Not change physical resolution
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:44 EST
Description of problem:
Installation detects Viewsonic E790-3 monitor and radeon 7000 board
but even during installation, the physical resolution is 640x480 (by
Viewmeter on monitor) while the virtual (picture size) appears to be
1024x768. Cnrt-Alt-Num+ does not change the physical resolution.
I have modified the XF86Config file in a number of different ways - no
effect - and just reinstalled on the hope that would work - no go!
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: always! Initially I installed (2 months ago) using
a generic 800x600 monitor and all woked well (physical and virtual
displays agreeing) but at no time with the Viewsonic (unless I set the
resolution as 640x480 in the config file).
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run startx in runlevel 3 or always in runlevel 5
Actual results: have to use the mouse to push the virtual screen
around the physical screen in order to access all of the screen.
In runlevel 5, sometimes the image appears to split and appear in pieces.
Expected results: an agreement of physical and virtual screens (hope I
have the terminology approximately correct)
Additional info: Could send config file and log file (did to xfree86
mail discussion group) but since this occurred even on the re-install
I didn't think it was relevant.
Please upgrade to Fedora Core 2, and if the problem persists, please
try xorg-x11-6.8.0 and hwdata from Fedora development. Once you've
tested the latest stuff, if the problem still persists, please
file a bug report at http://bugs.freedesktop.org in the "xorg"
component and X.Org developers can then investigate the issue.
Once you've filed your bug report to X.Org, if you paste the URL
here, we will also track the issue in X.Org bugzilla and consider
any fixes for future updates.
Setting status to "MODIFIED" pending testing as per above.
Thanks in advance.
Dec. 2, 2005: Thanks for the fix - have upgraded to fc4
works nicely, R.F. Snider
