Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 130604
Laptop with 1680x1050 monitor
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:47 EST
Description of problem:
This resolution is not listed in our menus
Also affects RHEL4 snapshots.
Generic LCD Display; LCD Panel 1680x1050; 0; 31.5-90; 60
is in the monitorsdb. Where are you not seeing it?
The installer and system-config-display
If I go into the display tool I can tell it my monitor is 1680x1050,
but then it offers me 1600x1200 and 1920x1440 modelines but not
The 1680x1050 display has an aspect ratio of 16x10 which must be
specified in the xorg.conf file. Add the following,
# 1680x1050 @ 60.00 Hz (GTF) hsync: 65.22 kHz; pclk: 147.14 MHz
Modeline "1680x1050" 147.14 1680 1784 1968 2256 1050 1051 1054 1087
# Here we define 16:10 modes
And then in the Monitor section put a UseModes "16:10"
VendorName "Monitor Vendor"
ModelName "LCD Panel 1680x1050"
HorizSync 31.5 - 90.0
VertRefresh 60.0 - 60.0
You misunderstand the problem. I know X can do it (and I am doing it)
but the graphical configuration tools should also have done it for me.
Moving to s-c-display; there's really nothing that can be done in the
We need to have much smarter handling of modes - both for UseModes and
for custom named modes. Add to tracker.
Sure, but in the meantime, can't that resolution be added like all the
others are? Seems like bug #121148 was closed too soon, as yes, the
resolution is present when choosing the screen, and X works when
configured with it, but you can't choose it as the default resolution
for the system in firstboot or s-c-display (tested in FC3 RC5).
(#121148 and #121104 are also probably only "partly fixed")
This is still a problem in fc3 so I updated that.
This problem (with s-c-d) is also a problem with 1920x1200 and
I have a Compaq R3000z with nvidia hardware and the nv driver works
with all three resolution but only after I handcode them. s-c-d
really needs to support the 16:10 displays which are becoming more common.

Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.
I belive this works in system-config-display-1.0.37-2 in FC5.
