Description Stewart Smith 2004-08-10 10:08:45 EDT
No way (in GUI) to change refresh rate of screen. I suspect my screen
is not at a high enough refresh rate (i see flicker and it's making me
ill), and i can't change it using a GUI.

We should be detecting your screen better - please append the output
of running as root kudzu -p -b ddc and attach your xorg.conf.  Also
please give full hardware details of your setup.

It is possible that moving to the s3virge driver may help.  Please
note the comments in bug #125866 about reported video corruption bug

What version of hwdata do you have?
What is the output of lspci -vn?

Can you update to hwdata-0.124-1 or later and run
system-config-display --reconfig and see if the behaviour improves?
Comment 7 Adam Jackson 2006-03-22 15:32:05 EST
The config file given lists the driver as "vesa".  The vesa driver is incapable
of setting video modes not listed in the video bios, and occasionally fails even

In its current state of report, this bug is unfixable.  Please reopen if this is
still an issue with FC5.
