Description Hans de Goede 2000-07-01 05:12:34 EDT
On the monitor selection screen there are no more generic monitors, only
laptop screens, this is bad imho.

This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Winston Beta-5
Comment 2 Michael Fulbright 2000-07-20 21:15:14 EDT
Is this in GUI or text mode installs?
Comment 3 Hans de Goede 2000-07-21 02:01:35 EDT

You can still select the generic types if you first select custom (atleast in

But in 6.2 there used to be a generic brand in the graphical installer
containing the types you can now select in custom mode (besides ebtering
paramters yourself)

Since custom scares people, I believe the generic monitors shouild return to the
main list and custom should be really just entering sync ranges yourself.

Fixed in CVS.
Comment 5 Pekka Savola 2000-08-03 08:40:16 EDT
This was either not fixed properly (Generic * Monitors still missing in
Pinstripe), or it was
submitted too late.
