Description Matthias Clasen 2004-09-02 12:44:47 EDT
During installatin I selected 1152x864, but this seems to be ignored, 
gdm and the regular desktop come up in 800x600.
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2004-09-02 12:54:23 EDT
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?
Comment 2 Paul Nasrat 2004-09-02 12:56:46 EDT
Also please attach your xorg.conf and paste in the results of running
as root 

kudzu -p -b ddc

Comment 6 Jonathan Blandford 2004-09-30 15:45:32 EDT

What resolution choices are given running system-config-display

Comment 10 Matthias Clasen 2004-10-12 09:29:27 EDT
I get 

with 800x600 being initially selected
Comment 11 Paul Nasrat 2004-10-20 04:44:59 EDT
If it's available to select there it should be available to select
during firstboot. 
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
Comment 12 Paul Nasrat 2004-11-16 11:01:56 EST
Can you confirm if setting 1152x864 in firstboot works with either the
above or with FC3 gold
Comment 13 Søren Sandmann Pedersen 2005-04-04 13:45:16 EDT
I plan to punt this bug to FC5 unless I hear something fairly quickly
Comment 14 Matthias Clasen 2006-03-11 09:48:41 EST
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.
Comment 15 Adam Jackson 2006-04-19 13:12:49 EDT
closing as per comment #14
