Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 131595
Screen resolution not picked up
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:48 EST
During installatin I selected 1152x864, but this seems to be ignored,
gdm and the regular desktop come up in 800x600.
During the install? There's nothing that sets resolution during the
install itself... there's a screen in firstboot, is that where?
Could you look in your X log to see if there are any errors with the
config that are causing it to throw out higher resolutions?
Also please attach your xorg.conf and paste in the results of running
kudzu -p -b ddc

kudzu -p -b ddc > foo
Can you attach the generated xorg.conf also please
Is this still a problem?
I can try do do another fresh install tomorrow to check

xorg.conf from a recent install
What resolution choices are given running system-config-display
with 800x600 being initially selected
If it's available to select there it should be available to select
The resolution menu defaults to the current running resolution of x
(firstboot), which in your case may be800x600.
First update to latest rhpl and system-config-display in rawhide.
Then set your display to 800x600 via system-config-display so we're as
the default resolution.
rm -f /etc/sysconfig/firstboot
/sbin/chkconfig --add firstboot
reboot into firstboot and choose 1152x864 does it set the resolution
Can you confirm if setting 1152x864 in firstboot works with either the
above or with FC3 gold
I plan to punt this bug to FC5 unless I hear something fairly quickly
The x86_64 box that this occurred on has not shown and screen resolution problems
in recent test installs. I recommend to just close this.
