Description Eric Bourque 2004-10-19 13:30:01 EDT
During an install of Fedora Core 3 test 3 on an HP laptop (zx5000), at
the final stage, I chose generic LCD 1280 x 800 which is the
resolution of the laptop. Despite this, the pulldown for my
'preferred' resolution did not contain 1280 x 800. I had to manually
edit xorg.conf to contain 1280 x 800, and then all worked perfectly.

What happens if you reduce the colour depth selection?
Comment 2 Eric Bourque 2004-10-19 17:04:39 EDT
When I run System Settings -> Display, I'm still not presented with an
option for 1280 x 800, despite the fact that the hardware tab shows
this as Generic LCD 1280 x 800, and the video card is listed as Radeon
M9600. Resolutions which are higher show in the menu, just not the
1280 x 800.

When I change colour depths, there are no changes in the resolution menu.
Comment 3 Paul Nasrat 2004-10-19 17:36:11 EDT
What version of system-config-display and rhpl?
Comment 4 Eric Bourque 2004-10-19 17:51:33 EDT
system-config-display: 1.0.21-1
rhpl: 0.147-1
Comment 5 Paul Nasrat 2004-10-19 18:04:57 EDT
Can you upgrade both those packages to rawhide versions 1.0.22-1
 and 0.148-1 and try the depth change again.

s-c-display 1.0.22-1 added the depth callback.  I'm wondering if our
mode calculations are masking the resolutions.
Comment 6 Eric Bourque 2004-10-21 01:22:48 EDT
Just upgraded to:


from rawhide and the behaviour is unchanged, whether or not I play
with the colour depth menu. 1280 x 800 is displayed in the display
tab, but in the resolution pulldown, this resolution does not show up.
